MILES DAVIS: 1986-1991 The Warner Years (5CD Box Set)

In 1985, Miles Davis shocked the music world by moving from Columbia to Warner Bros. He immediately started working on an album called ‘Perfect Way’ after a tune by Scritti Politti, later renamed ‘Tutu’ by producer Tommy LiPuma. When ‘Tutu’ was released in 1986, it re-ignited Miles Davis’ career, crossing over into the rock and pop markets and winning Davis two Grammy Awards - the album was a key factor in raising Davis’ status to an international superstar. This 5 CD box set covers the later part of Miles Davis’ life, from the Warner Bros studio albums ‘Tutu’, ‘Amandla’ and ‘Doo-Bop’, the ‘Dingo’ and ‘Siesta’ soundtracks and live recordings with Quincy Jones and the likes of Kenny Garrett, Foley and Adam Holzman. It also includes 4 previously unreleased tracks, from the Rubberband Sessions. Comes with liner notes by leading jazz critic Ashley Kahn.
