"The Sun Don't Lie" is one of those things of beauty that you stumble upon and realize that it happened for a reason. Before this album I knew Miller as only a collaborator and top notch Electric Bass player. A knowledgeable jazz listening friend of mine owns a record store and told me to check this disc out when it was first released. When I looked at the line-up of artists, it was breathtaking. Miles Davis (this was to be released posthumously and one of Miles final recordings), Wayne Shorter, Lenny White, Don Alias, Paulinho DaCosta, Vernon Reid, Jason Miles, Joe Sample, Andy Narell, Kenny Garrett(the real "Kenny G"),Maurice White, Poogie Bell, Michael "Patches" Stewart, Steve Thornton, Omar Hakim, Hiram Bullock and many more unbelievably... The song list, mostly originals written by Miller, include "Panther" a rousing tune with Miller's trademark bass licks leading things off. "Steveland" a song written as a tribute to the wonderful Stevie "Steveland Morris" Wonder, with stellar performances by Miller, Wayne Shorter and the under appreciated David Sanborn (in top form), and "Rampage" the afforementioned tune featuring Miles Davis's trademark Harmon Muted horn solo. The final cut, "The King Is Gone (For Miles)", is a moving mix of fusion and an interlude in the middle of straight ahead playing with Miller showing off his Bass Clarinet skills, Acoustic Bass and the masterfully mournful tenor sound of Wayne Shorter. All eleven cuts are incredible, but this song alone makes it worth the purchase. I own nearly 1,000 cd's ranging from Adderly to Zawinful and I would recommend this disc to anyone who has a passion, and as I do, a desire to find the ONE perfect jazz disc. If this isn't it, it's as close as we've come in the past decade. ~ Greg Randolph
