Rolling Stone
Davis’ trumpet playing remains a piercing, invigorating sound on the jazz scene, but unfortunately, last summer’s band failed to offer the support his trumpet musings need. […]

The sound of Marcus’ playing on ‘We Want Miles‘ is less engaging than a field recording of mud-bricks being laid in Morocco. Miles is ragged, as if his lips were swollen and split from five years in the desert. Side 3’s ‘My Man’s Gone Now’ is better than the previous sentences suggest. […]

Burning Ambulance
He’s wearing a tank top, pants and boots, just like in 1970, but set against a bright yellow background like the one from On the Corner. Miles Davis, not the band, is the star. Is a star. […]
