Robert Glasper will be releasing an album of Miles Davis reinterpretations in May featuring contributions from Bilal, Erykah Badu, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Stevie Wonder, and more.
Titled Everything’s Beautiful, the album was created by Glasper in collaboration with Miles Davis’ relatives with a view to do “something where we can take some of Mile’s ideas and shake ’em up, and try to show the influence of Miles and making new things.”
The album blends a diverse group of master takes and outtakes from across Miles’ incredible tenure with Columbia Records (1955-1985) with original reinterpretations of songs by Davis. From the obvious (riffs and passages within the catalog) to the obscure (samples of Miles’ in-studio instructions spoken after false starts), Glasper has built something unique but still unquestionably Miles.
