Traveling Miles [DVD Audio]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
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 ...

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
A tribute by Cassandra Wilson to Miles Davis seems like a very logical idea, but this CD is actually less than one would expect. Wilson's deep voice gives a downbeat feel to the music, her lyrics for such Davis-associated songs as "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down," "Seven Steps to Heaven," "ESP," "Tutu" and "Blue in Green" are forgettable, and her interpretations smooth down most of the melodies, robbing them of their personality. Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" and "Someday My Prince Will Come" fare better, but most of the set which includes three unrelated originals is as boring as Cassandra Wilson's voice. Despite the presence of some notable all-stars including Steve Coleman, Stefon Harris, Regina Carter and Pat Metheny, this is a misfire. [The album's DVD-audio edition included 5.1 sound, as well as lyrics, a Wilson featurette, and additional photography.]
