Overview

On the face of things, TRAVELING MILES promises a trip down roads already trod by that oft-honored hero, Miles Davis. And here, Cassandra Wilson does tackle the iconic trumpeter's legacy, with new takes on (and, in some cases, original lyrics to) songs he made famous, such as "Someday My Prince Will Come," "Miles Runs the VooDoo Down," and "Tutu." But the music is more a continuation of Wilson's fascinating personal path, one filled with plaintive melodies, deep grooves, twangy guitars, some carefully tailored original songs, and her familiar, rich, smoky voice. More than a tribute to the past, this is a celebration of potency and passion in the here and now.
