The Jazz Recording Event of 2011. Conceived and Produced by Bob Belden, Miles Espanol is an amazing journey into the Spanish soul of Miles Davis---and beyond.
In May of 2010, a group of Miles Davis alumni, New Yorks finest Latin Jazz players, and a contingent of exceptional Spanish flamenco musicians, gathered at Sear Sound Studios in Manhattan for an unprecedented recording event.
MILES ESPANOL travels more deeply than ever before into the connective tissue between the jazz innovations of Miles Davis and the modern masters who performed in his bands; and the dramatic, romantic soul of Spanish, Latin and Moorish traditional and contemporary music.
Two CDs of material were recorded, blending two different categories of repertoire.
New interpretations and arrangements of Miles classics from Sketches Of Spain ( Concierto de Aranjuez , Saeta/Pan Piper Medley , Solea ), Kind Of Blue ( Flamenco Sketches ), and Someday My Price Will Come ( Teo aka Teo/Neo .)
New compositions by principals in the sessions Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, etc. that enhance and extend the musical concepts into the multicultural language of 21st Century Jazz.
THE PLAYERS - Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Ron Carter, Sammy Figueroa, Sonny Fortune, Alex Acuña, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Rabih Abu-Khalil, Chano Domínguez, Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent, Eddie Gomez, Jerry Gonzalez, Cristina Pato, Jaco Abe, Edsel Gomez, Adam Rudolph, Brahim Fribgane, Edmar Castañeda, Niño Josele, Antonio Sanchez, John Benitez.

Gets better with each listen. Enjoy.
Hey what else could you wish for .
Miles with the flamenco touch, couldn't get any better than that.
Try and listen to this style of music.
Not a take on Miles so much as the music that inspired Miles to venture into Sketches of Spain etc.Tranquil but intense and building as it goes, the great personnel weave... Read morePublished on August 20, 2012 by billito

I heard a track from this via my local public jazz station and was hooked. Of course, they were playing Concierto Aranjuez, which is a beautiful piece anyway, but the jazz take on... Read morePublished on February 19, 2012 by Janet Macleod
