VIDEO: Producer Robert Glasper reworks rare Miles Davis outtakes and masters in “Violets” ft. Phonte.
About the album:
The album blends a diverse group of master takes and outtakes fromacross Miles’ incredible tenure with Columbia
Records (1955-1985) with original reinterpretations of songs by Davis. From the obvious (riffs and passages within
the catalog) to the obscure (samples of Miles’ in-studio instructions spoken after false starts), Glasper has built
something unique but still unquestionably Miles.
