Product Description

"RECORDING OF THE MONTH" Stereophile - November 2002 "...the performance was one of those that begged to be recorded. Fortunately, it was." - Jazz Review The night of May 12, 2002 may have just become another important milestone on the timeline of legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. Four musicians, each representing a different Miles Davis band from his ever-evolving career, came together at the club Makor in New York City to do what everybody said couldn't be done: to effectively fuse together elements of the radically different styles that Miles Davis embodied over his 45 years of professional performance. But after witnessing the masterful skills of drummer Jimmy Cobb, tenor saxophonist George Coleman, bassist Ron Carter and guitarist Mike Stern, it is clear they almost immediately established the kind of chemistry that pays tribute to every facet of Miles Davis' lifetime of work. Four contrasting approaches to the jazz combo; four different perspectives on the improviser's art; one live set in New York City- and Chesky captured it all and is proud to offer this recording in Multi-Channel SACD format. "In terms of star power, this record's got no shortage. The group is airtight, and each player plays articulately and lyrically." - All About Jazz "An excellent tribute...head and shoulders above most such efforts." - All Music Guide "It's hard not to be moved, exhilarated, pleased...there's depth to the soundstage, and air around the musicians." - Stereophile
