Davis, Miles - Miles AheadVendor: Sony
NEW VINYL LP ON SONY 2016
2 X 180 GRAM VINYL.
This album traces the musical legacy of Miles Davis from 1959 through his early 80s comeback -- the time period dealt with in the film. What really makes it a standout soundtrack is that it takes the Spike Lee approach in telling a story through the full album format. Moments of Cheadle portraying Miles's famous quotes and statements are put into the mix as interludes between songs. I'm not usually a fan of this but it allows for the soundtrack to feel like a journey one is taking through the mind of Miles.
