While Bill Frisell and Brian Blade are well known master improvisers, Ron Miles is not, but should be. His sensitive work with Bill Frisell is reason enough to get this recording, and the interplay here is beautiful.
Each new music from Ron Miles is a gift, a precious gift. Ron Miles is a special trumpets, with a very sophisticated sound, at first sigh look very simple but is more complicated that this. In tis CD Ron Miles take with him a two incredible musician; Bill Frisell and Brian Blade. They make since years the same type of jazz, a perfect blend of contemporary jazz, same blues roots, a little of folk sound and, why not?, classical standard. In this opportunity all the composition are from Miles except one by Fred Fisher, other from Duke Ellintong, and a fantastic version of "Days of Wine and Roses" from the great Mancini. 3 themes are recorded live and the rest in studio. Anyway the CD is fastanstic, there is something magic in the sound and, more important, in the silence. Is brilliant and also stoic. A great new album from Ron Miles, Bill Frisell and Brian Blade. Absolutely elegant and fresh.
PS. Hear the album "Heaven". Is a duets between Ron Miles and BIll Frisell, edited 10 years ago ana is the perfect complement of this one
These gentlemen are the future's jazz greats and this album and all the rest of their respective discographies, including all their work that overlaps, will be a gift to every existing thing that hears it. Improved the quality of life on earth, guys. Thanks.
