NEW MILES DAVIS/ROBERT GLASPER ALBUM & ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK

March 9, 2016

We are delighted to announce two new album releases celebrating the 90th birthday of the legendary Miles Davis.

‘Everything’s Beautiful’, is a beautifully crafted collection of re-imagined interpretations of Miles Davis’ music produced by Grammy Award winner Robert Glasper, with guest artists including Bilal, Hiatus Kaiyote, Laura Mvula, Ledisi, and Stevie Wonder.

An exploration of the music of Miles Davis, ‘Everything’s Beautiful’ incorporates Davis’ original recordings into new collaborative soundscapes and will be available Friday, May 27 (the day after Miles’ 90th birthday).

Speaking about the 11 song set on the album Glasper states, “I didn’t want to do just a remix record, my idea was to show how Miles inspired people to make new art.” ‘Everything’s Beautiful’ is unlike any other album in Davis’ discography. From the familiar riffs and passages within the catalog to the obscure, Glasper has built something unique but still unquestionably Miles.

‘Miles Ahead’, is a cinematic exploration of the life and music of Miles Davis, the movie feature ‘Miles Ahead’ marks the directorial debut of Don Cheadle, who co-wrote the screenplay (with Steven Baigelman) and stars as the legendary musician in the film.
