It is a companion piece to his pathfinding release, The Latin Side of John Coltrane, and it finds him reveling in the company of featured bandmates who draw inspiration and energy from the spirit of Miles. Selections include the entire Kind of Blue repertoire including "So What," Freddie Freeloader," and "All Blues" - plus bonus track "Petits Machins" from Miless Filles De Kilimanjaro.

Even though it seems like all I've done is complain, I still give this album four stars. The arrangements though far out of character are very intelligent and impressive. Every player on the album is an absolute monster and the material is well performed, just not well displayed. The most shining moment on this album is the ballad "Blue in Green." Despite the strange medium of latin grooves with such a classic album, its an album worth having around. Just a warning to Miles Davis fans that you may be upset by Herwigs heresies.
Back to this CD though... I think I was missing his compositional capabilities, although his arrangements are always strong. Regardless, this is a strong CD, and if it was the first CD I had heard by Herwig, I know that I would have been hooked on him forever. Unfortunately, I have heard many CDs by Herwig that had more inspired solos than this one.
