Overview

Miles Davis's final Columbia recording (other than Aura which was released several years later) includes his straightforward ballad interpretations of Cyndy Lauper's "Time After Time" and the Michael Jackson-associated "Human Nature," two songs he would play in most of his concerts for the remainder of his life. Other tunes (including "You're Under Arrest," "One Phone Call" and "Ms. Morrisine") were quickly discarded. In addition to Davis (who had regained his earlier chops) tenor-saxophonist Bob Berg, guitarist John Scofield and guest John McLaughlin get in a few decent solos on this competent but not overly memorable effort.

There is a great deal of respect for Miles, but this is not a referance recording for him. Do not get me wrong, I have a sweet spot in my heart for Miles, wich comes from a deep appriciation of his work and philosophy of always pushing his music foreward. However this album (heck, you could say music in the eighties in general) is on of his lesser marks. For someone who is new to Miles' music (and I do mean MILES' music, since the man can hardly be lumped into one category) would probibaly be better off with either an offering such as In a Silent Way, indicitive of his early ''electric'' days, or Do-Bop, the last album he released. If you're looking for something more indicitive of the 80's pop music scene, perhapse Tutu would be a better selection (or you can have a rather epic view of his 80-90's era music in the album Miles Davis: Live Around the World (a 90's release from Warner Brothers).
