Miles Davis - A Tribute to Jack Johnson

180g SuperVinyl, LP - MFSV1-516 - MSRP €90.00

None of Miles Davis's albums lived up to his claim to have assembled the greatest rock band ever heard better than A Tribute To Jack Johnson. In addition to Miles Davis himself, the band includes Steve Grossman, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Michael Henderson and Billy Cobham. The material on the two tracks comes from a total of four recording sessions between February and June 1970 and was carefully put together by producer Teo Macero. The result is arguably the most rocking jazz album of all time.

Legend has it that the recording began when McLaughlin started playing riffs on his guitar while waiting for Davis. Henderson and Cobham jammed along and Hancock, who happened to be there, was persuaded to join in on the Hammond organ. Miles Davis can also be heard from 2:19 onwards, playing one of the funkiest, most difficult and complex solos of his career. Rarely has the trumpeter been so out of control as here.

The 180-gram LP, pressed on SuperVinyl, boasts an ultra-smooth surface, outstanding groove definition and room-filling sound.

We recommend the use of "L'Art du Son" LP cleaner to wet wash your vinyl. Even new records of high quality production will benefit from this.
