dadsdiscdelights👨👋 Welcome to #dadsdiscdelights coming live and direct from Dad's (rather large!) vinyl collection! So first up Miles Davis...
🔸MILES DAVIS - TUTU🔸
Dad says: Me and Miles Davis. Since forever it seems. Certainly since I first heard “Now's the Time” with Charlie Parker in 1951/52.......
Pictured is Tutu from 1986 at the height of Miles's last period. The title track refers of course to South Africa's Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the closing track, Full Nelson, whilst referring to Nelson Mandela is also a play on the title of Miles' 1947 composition Half Nelson. If you like Tutu, you will like it's 'companion' album Amandla* (1988). Organising, arranging, and playing dynamite bass on both of these albums is the astonishingly multi-talented Marcus Miller.
The music is miles away from Kind of Blue. It’s electronic, it’s fusion, it’s funk but above all it’s unmistakably Miles Davis.
NOTE ✏️: *Amandla is a Xhosa and Zulu word meaning "power". The word was a popular rallying cry in the days of resistance against Apartheid, used by the African National Congress and its allies. The leader of a group would call out "Amandla!" and the crowd would respond with "Awethu" or "Ngawethu!" (to us).The word is still associated with struggles against oppression.
