Totally lame, IMHO, but if you're into this sort of thing you might like it.

The idea of the great Miles Davis producing a hip hop album perfectly fit my sensibilities.

If you are a classic jazz aficionado this album is probably not for you, that is unless you've got an open mind. This album was way ahead of its time. Obviously a direct influence on Guru's Jazzamatazz series. The disc is an unbelievable blend of jazz, funk and hip hop. I suppose this album sort've reaches "cult favorite status". Toss this on at any occasion, whether it be in the car, at a party or at dinner, any decent fan of music will recognize the originality of this cd. I am 19. My Dad is turning 50 in a week. I'll say that we both groove to this disc equally hard.

A few weeks ago while trying to get a BBQ together for 350 that was running behind I suddenly heard that familiar horn playing on the Chef's stereo but it wasn't the usual Miles Davis I was into. After inquiring I realized it was Doo Bop and after listening to a few cuts felt my tension melt away. A few days ago I picked up the album myself and loved it even though I'm mostly a fan of Miles stuff from the 50's and 60's. It's a shame Miles passed away while making this because I feel he was really on to something espeacilly considering that he was planning on working with Prince soon. If anyone is considering looking for something different than what Miles usually had put out, pick up this album today.

Had Miles Davis lived to see this project through, it's possible that most or all of the Eazy Mo Bee-produced DOO-BOP cuts would have remained in the can, in favor of projects we can only speculate upon (he was set to work with Prince, John Bigham, and others). However, when Davis died the EMB sessions were prepared for release.
From what I've read, Miles picked from a selection of grooves concocted by hip-hop producer Eazy Mo Bee, and that Davis ignored EMB's mellower, keyboard-flavored demos in favor of the tracks with the slammin'est beats. As usual, Miles knew what he wanted, because his solos are consistently assertive and full of imaginative twists and turns. Has Davis ever played invigorating trumpet a greater percentage of an album's total running time than here? Drop any fears that because it is Miles' last album that we have to lower HIS or OUR standards to appreciate the improvisations.
The general consensus is that the album's achilles heel is the rapping, with relatively trite rhyme-play on the three non-instrumental cuts. Nonetheless, I think that if the Smithsonian were ever to update their jazz box and needed some hiphop-meets-bebop, BLOW--the most substantial of the three rap tracks--would be as good a selection as any. And isn't it ironic that the title cut was a posthumous hit single (probably Davis' first-ever)? Had he lived to tour about it, imagine Davis turning his back on audience shouts to hear THE DOO-BOP SONG played live (ala his not performing the radio faves THE MAN WITH THE HORN and SHOUT a decade earlier).
If you'd like to hear how jazz and hip-hop might converge, this album is recommended despite the fact that the accompiament could have had more of a creative edge. Everyone has their own idea of what rap/hip-hop artist Miles "should" have collaborated with...I would have liked to have heard Miles mix it up with Digital Underground.

Miles does it again. Damn, this has great production from the great producer Easy Mo Bee, who has produced for the likes of Busta Rhymes, Kurupt, Tupac Shakur, LL Cool J, Notorious B.I.G., Buckshot(King of the Underground), and others. There are some sample loops, like something A Tribe Called Quest would do. Miles also has a few rappers on here. J.R., A.B. Money, and Easy Mo Bee. The raps are interesting, but none of the rappers on here are as skilled as the ones who are popular today. If Miles had Kamal "Q-Tip" Fareed of A Tribe Called Quest on here, well, let's just say Tupac would be the most jealous man on Earth.

This was Miles' last CD, which was finished up shortly after his death. It's him playing horn riffs over the grooves & rhythm sample loops of a hip-hop DJ called Ezy Mo Bee (no other musicians appear on this disc). It's a great disc! Worth it just for the tracks "Blow", and "Chocolate Chip", though all the tracks have merit. Jazz purists are probably cringing, but if you like it hip-hop funky, you'll love it. One of my favorite "final phase" Miles CDs. As usual, Miles points the way once again!! Way to go Miles, love you always.

Being a young guy, and becoming interested in jazz in the late 90's, I'm very impressed with this album, as it combines electronic elements, jazz and rap (which I usuallt hate, by the way). There's a lot of Miles albums I don't care of, but this is one of the best I've ever heard of. What a way to leave the stage!

Miles was no longer on this Earth by the time this came out-we all know that. The point is that while he was making this recording with Easy Mo Bee towards the end of the life Miles was at the very least throwin' down and having one wail of a time. And that's no pun because this album allows Miles to wail away with the best of them. After a string of electric jazz records that alternated from mildly abstract to almost smooth during the late 80's this found Miles in a place that really worked for him. The hip-hop culture,much like that of be-bop fueled it's creative juices in much the same sort of colorful environment. And being who he was this "sweet n low down" kind of atmosphere really baught him into a place where he could just play his horn and know what he was dealing with while he did so. Every track on this album are a funk track-created from a sampadelic musical pallet using everything from fender rhodes loops,percussion,drums,horn blasts and yelps. Sure it's a pretty common type of funk/hip-hop backing to be sure but hey:it was created AROUND Miles and the man and his horn are definately telling the music where he wants it to go. On a couple songs such as the title track Mo Bee throws down a very ego tripping (on Miles' behalf) rap,memorably (in my mind) proclaiming Miles as a "multi talented and gifted musician who can play in any position". Yeah it's a little padding but by the time to get to the playing and how everything works around it you know a lot of it is dead on-had been for decades. Some of the songs are in fact just unbelievably fast n funky such as "Chocolate Chip" and "High Speed Chase". While your listening to this album you won't only find yourself dancing off all the beats and loops but also to Miles' soft but often very kinetic solos and wails.Read more ›
