  • We Want Miles

    Marcus Miller and Mike Stern are just killin' on this.  That is all.  You may now return to your dopey Simple Rock.

    That album could very well have Marcus Miller's career-best moment. Terrific bass playing.

    And definitely one of Miles's best 80s albums.

      Stern's solo in the long version of Jean Pierre is one of my favorites by him.

       

      Just listened to the disc the other day. Damn good. Just damn good, son.

        Yeah, yeah, yeah.Can you come up with something better?

         

        "Dads are bad. Jazz is bad. I don't understand dads. I don't understand jazz. And therefore I can lump them together and hereby toss my youthful cleverosity all over the interwebs.

         

        **************** dads. **************** jazz. My generation got it right."

         

        Weak. Try taking the stairs once in a while.

        Leave my music alone, son.  Go with Sad Navigator and listen to some contemporary crap.

      Miles Davis is a bit like the Beatles. He has been lionized to such a degree that many of his fans find it impossible that anyone could fail to be inspired by him. Miles-Davis worship is as predictably tedious as the endless splash of brushes and plinking pianos that serve as the backdrop for so many of his classic riffs.

      My years of trying to like "Kind of Blue" and his other greatest hits albums are behind me. I'll stick to my own tastes without apology. If it helps explain my opinion easier, I don't like much jazz in general, although Marsallis' "Hot House Flowers" is a favorite.

        No respect then?U must be mad then.

        U mad cuz he has been "lioniized"? U mad cuz you don't like "the endless splash of brushes and plinking pianos...."  U mad cuz the endless stream of musical (not cultural) innovation are so broad that they have  college level courses to study it? U mad cuz its innovation you "don't get" ?

         

        Yeah. YOu tried to like it. AND FAILED. No apology needed.  It's over your head. Again, take the stairs once in a while.  It's good for ya.

      Marcus Miller and Al Foster intrigue me the most about this band.
