O’s Notes: Electric Miles“is a big band representation of the Miles Davis jazz-fusion period (1969-1972). Davis“was once again on the leading edge of a transition in jazz. Saxophonist, flutist and arranger Charles Pillow leads a big band revisiting some of the highlights from the period, tunes written by Miles, Joe Zawinul, and Wayne Shorter. The use of a large ensemble illustrates the music from a different angle. Trumpeters Tony Kadleck, Tim Hagens, Charlie Carr and Clay Jenkins do a fine job with their interpretations of Davis’ works.
