it was widely published about the „New Miles Davis Record“, a session which took place between the records of „The Man With The Horn“ and „Tutu“, Miles Davis recorded between October 1985 to January 1986 for his new record label.

As I am a big fan of Miles this was a MUST for me. The music is pretty well recorded and pressed in high quality. Critics are different always pointing to the musical standpoint of the writers, some do not like „Paradise“ or „Rubberband of Life“. I love all periods Miles went through, I am not so much in the soulful corner (like „So Emotional“) but all other songs are exceptional! I go with old, funky, reggae, fusion jazz. Mike Stern on „The Wrinkle“, my god – what a song. If you do not get lost by playing these tunes you should visit a different hobby…

My carts Ortofon Century in the FR-66s as well as the Miyabi in the DV505 were tracking „The Rubberband Session“ in a spectacular way. After Coltrane’s forgotten record, „New Directions“, this is a new highlight in the Jazz-scene.

  1. Eckart,
    I am a huge Miles fan, especially of his ‘cool jazz’ period. But some of his 70’s and eighties efforts left me confused. I never really cared for the Jack Johnson period, and his mid eighties effort Decoy seemed to lack purpose and direction. So I might hesitate a little before buying this one.
    Your exciting review does have me curious however.



  2. Norman,
    Jack Johnson is a wonderful album. You need to buy a good copy, or SACD – one of Miles ´s best albums. Ah, it is like it is, sometimes we need introduction and guidance. You might enjoy both Jack Johnson and Rubberband – but both are different.
