This is the recording Miles Davis was working on when he checked into the hospital in mid-September of 1991. With his passing on the 28th of September, a major epoch in American music came to a close. Somewhere in the back of his mind he probably knew that he was living on borrowed time, because earlier that summer he'd finally consented to make a nostalgic return to the classic music that emerged from his collaborations with Gil Evans (MILES & QUINCY AT MONTREAUX). But as the contemporary sounds of DOO-BOP indicate, Miles Davis was incapable of sustained backwards glances.

As the rapology of J.R., A.B. Money and Easy Mo Bee on 'The Doo-Bop Song,' 'Blow' and 'Fantasy' indicates, Miles and his collaborators were still feeling each other out in terms of themes and context. The raps revolve around hangin' with the legendary Davis--let's dim the lights and get down with my man Miles. In terms of dance tracks, the Afro-Cuban airs of 'Blow' make it the most successful, while 'Fantasy' re-visits Clyde Stubblefield's much sampled 'Funky Drummer' beat--via the 'Red Clay' chord changes--with hip-happy results.

But many of the funky arrangements are a bitch, and Miles sounds funky, lyrical and relaxed. 'Chocolate Chip' recalls the ancient doo wop and R&B antecedents of modern funk, including a nod to James Brown, while 'Duke Booty' presents the modern perspective on funk. And 'High Speed Chase' anticipates the current acid jazz fascination with cool blues and boogaloo grooves of the Blue Note and CTI studio styles, as Miles blows bumblebee lines over fatback organ, vibes and a variety of street sounds.

'...a collector's piece...it is as hip, sexy, open and complex as the best of his work since he elected to turn to FM airplay music in the 1980's...' (B-Q)

'...This is a hip hop record....For younger ears weaned on modern beats, it's an inviting opening into one of the great cornucopias of American music....Like most everything Miles played, the music of DOO-BOP is cool and warm, beautiful and true...' (Musician Magazine)
