Jazz.

Byline: PETER BACON

Jazz Tutu Miles Davis A reissue of the Miles Davis album - or should that be the Marcus Miller album? - which was the first release on Davis's new record company, Warner Jazz, in 1986 after his near lifetime stay with Columbia.

All those who liked it then will like it now, even while reflecting that the sound and style hasn't travelled all that well.There are still some great grooves and great tunes here, and Davis will always sound timeless, no matter what surrounds him. The sound has been remastered, too, which removes some of that early CD harshness.

To celebrate the rerelease, and marking what would have been Davis's 85th birthday, there is a second disc in this package, containing an unreleased live show from the Nice Festival in July 1986.Thorough cover notes from Ashley Kahn and those gorgeous Irving Penn photographs complete the package.
