HOUR #6-BEHIND THE SCENES WITH MILES DAVIS

Hour features NEVER BEFORE BROADCAST out takes from the Columbia record vaults, featuring Miles’1955 band, his 1967 band and an unused take from the Sketches of Spain sessions. We then come into a modern studio circa 1988 with composer and bassist Marcus Miller and producer Tommy LiPuma demonstrating for us how they put together the song “TuTu” from the album of that name and integrated Miles’ gripping performance. Finally we are admitted to a Miles rehearsal of one of his last bands in 1988. We hear Miles talking to the band members about how he want the song interpreted, and commentary from the musicians about what it was like to get coaching from the master. This is the only known broadcast of a Miles Davis rehearsal.
