A Tribute to Miles Davis
Miles is dead – long live Miles! This attitude united five of the world's most famous jazz performers in a one-of-a-kind collaboration in 1992: For an entire year, they put their own personal projects on hold. In commemoration of the greatest jazz musician of all times, who had died in 1991, they wanted to gift jazz afficionados with a revival of the «Milestones» of jazz. Each of them had performed with Miles Davis for years and was a major star in his own right, having each toured the globe with his own band. It was a truly remarkable constellation, which was the perfect vehicle to reward all of the fans of mainstream, cool and electric jazz with a guaranteed adrenaline rush.
