Miles Davis

What could Marcus Miller possibly do to top himself after more then 30 years on the international scene? What does a man, who played bass with Miles Davis and went on to produce his records, do next? Well how about performing some of his repertoire with a big orchestra. Many gave done it but this is a special occasion. Marcus Miller is not the kind of person to give in to a muzak type of orchestral performance.

The orchestra is the Metropole Orkest and they are simply the best for this kind of occasions. This concert is absolutely amazing, to beautiful for words. If there ever was a guide leading the way on the international jazz music scene after Davis, Basie, Ellington, Gillespie, Coltrane.. Miller is the man.

Well it took the city of New York some time to honor one of its greatest musical ambassadors. But they did it. West 77th Street between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue will be officially renamed "Miles Davis Way". Read the story.

The world has lost another of his finest musicians: George Duke. Mr. Duke was an outstanding keyboard player, composer and producer sharing stage and studio space with Frank Zappa, Miles Davis (Amandla album), Michael Jackson and Stanley Clarke. George Duke died at the age of 67 in Los Angeles. Goodbye George and thanks for the gift of music.
