One of Miles Davis' last albums – and a swirling batch of "color" tracks that's almost a blending of his Gil Evans work with the early electric years! The album's one long extended suite – and it's got a moody feel that's really great – a shifting, shimmering sound that takes us back to the Evans years – but also with some of the colder, more modern moments of the late 60s. The set was recorded in Denmark, and is written and produced by Palle Mikkelborg – and it features a host of players, both American and European, including John McLaughlin on guitar, Bo Steif on bass, Jesper Thilo on reeds, Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, and Thomas Clausen on keyboards. Miles' solos are the primary focus over the large group setting – and each of the individual movements is named after a color: "White", "Yellow", "Orange", "Red", "Green", "Blue", "Electric Red", "Indigo", and "Violet".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
