Synopsis

Amazon.com
While the World Saxophone Quartet have been around since 1976, they still continue to challenge themselves in new and interesting ways. Here, multi- instrumentalists David Murray, Oliver Lake, Hamiet Bluiett, and newest member John Purcell embrace the daunting task of interpreting the music of Miles Davis. Accompanied by African percussionists and former Miles Davis sideman Jack DeJohnette, the WSQ enliven new arrangements of songs from several eras in Davis's prolific musical existence. Whether reconstructing epics like "Blue in Green" or "Freddie the Freeloader" from the immortal from Kind of Blue album or translating the trumpeter's Afro-fusion theme "Tutu," the WSQ make each composition their own. DeJohnette contributes both drums and piano to the proceedings while Chief Bey and his two percussion compatriots invigorate the rhythms. A compelling and imaginative homage. --Mitch Myers
