MW #327: Gentle Miles (featuring music with Gil Evans, Trane and Cannonball, “The Quintet” and the electric period)
Musicworks #330: "Miles Davis never finished a phrase..." said modern master Ralph Alessi. He's right--no matter what period amidst his multi-decade chameleonic career, Miles always held us all in suspense and wonder. He was NEVER "easy listening," and defied anyone to put his music into the background. Yet within all of that tension, Miles always drew an undercurrent of romanticism and tenderness for the melody and the sound of his horn. Take a deep listen with Musicworks director Jesse Neuman to some of the more gentle Miles moments over his career.
