In Cue – “A Tribute to Miles”

Album Cover, A Tribute to Miles: A Celebration Of The Life & Music Of Miles Davis, Quest Records, 1994

While we all collectively navigate through this chaotic period of unprecedented turmoil, I am reminded by the ‘challenge of the day’ that the cosmos is not at this moment well-ordered, nor is it indestructible.

So, I’ve elected to spend some quality time reconnecting with old musical friends that I have ignored far too long. I see them every day as I rush by. Sometimes I even give them a passing nod expressed in a fleeting non-emotive glance. At times, I have intentionally paused and stared back at them knowing well that the longer I do, the more likely it will be that I’ll engage and succumb to their alluring charms. Today, that no longer stands.

As I work from home I’ve decided to dine each day with a few new and familiar friends.

Today, it is a tribute Album to Miles Davis featuring Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter Wallace Roney and Tony Williams.
I was drawn to this album upon learning the news on the passing of trumpet player Wallace Roney. More about Roney at: http://www.wallaceroney.com/about.php
