Miles from India

Produced by Bob Belden

This is billed as a celebration of the music of Miles Davis, which has become a sub-genre unto itself. This one caught my attention immediately, though, even against the usual cacophony of Virgin Records, in Times Square.
This recording could have very easily have wallowed in cheap gimmicks and left it at that. Instead, it’s bubbling with ideas, and interesting ones, at that. The set brings together Miles stalwarts like Ron Carter and John McLaughlin and Chick Corea (and many more) with a large cast of Indian performers. The musicianship is high throughout and all kinds of sparks emanate from the unusual instrumentation.
