Miles Davis: Tutu Deluxe Edition

Deluxe double LP reissue of Miles Davis' Tutu! The album has been remastered and includes a live performance of the Miles Davis Octet at Nice Jazz Festival in 1986

30 years ago, in May and June 1985, Miles Davis signed recording and publishing contracts with Warner Bros Records and Warner Chappell, shocking the music world by leaving Columbia. 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 (a tribute to Desmond Tutu) was released in 1986, it re-ignited Miles Davis’ career, crossing over into the rock and pop markets and winning him two Grammy Awards. This album was a key factor in raising Davis’ status to an international superstar.

    What can you say. It's Miles after he's seven year recording hiatus and it is amazing.

    I love this album

    Miles, 80's sound is something you can hear all over the place now. But back then it was fresh. Combining different elements to forge a new path in jazz and pop music. This album is still the quintessential evidence for that sound. I have yet to hear something new or old that simply isn't recreating a bit on this album. Amandla fleshes out the country opened up by this album.

    This is unforgettable music. I at first i thought the title was just his title but later i realized that it was a tribute to a great man. We miss you Miles. You had a troubled life but your music was consistently great...
