Album Review

The unique all-star group featured on this live set from 1994 had not only never performed together before as a band, but most of the musicians had never been on the same stage with each other before. Miles Davis had passed away three years earlier, so the two Marcus Miller pieces, "Tutu" (which sounds surprisingly similar to "So What" during the solos even if the chords are different) and "The King Is Gone" are in tribute to the late trumpeter. "The King Is Gone" is a straight-ahead extended blues, while "Looking Up" has heated solos over a simple vamp. Overall, Kenny Garrett and Michel Petrucciani generally take solo honors (Biréli Lagrène is a bit overshadowed), while Miller and Lenny White keep the rhythms stimulating. Although the three selections are each quite extended, they hold one's interest throughout. Excellent music.

Gifted Marcus

After loving Ron Carter & Stanley Clarke with all my heart, I truly felt I'd heard the best God would offer mankind. But Marcus bust through door without invitation. He's simply amazing! No wonder the great Luther Vandross had such a fire in his music while Marcus played 4 him! This album shows Marcus' ability 2 blend with other great talent minus ego & allow a masterpiece 2 brew. Only 3 songs, but 3 SMOKIN songs! If you're a fan of Miles, Duke, Cobham or Ahmad Jamal you will love this!
