Miles Reencarnated

Any fan of Miles needs to hear this, especially if you love the post-Gil Evans Miles. Cassandra must have been a kid and I fantasize that he took her to his sessions. She has written most of the lyrics for this project and they have that essence of sorcery that was Miles, vague, ambiguous, archtypel, poignant. I'm not very familiar with Wilson's work & style so I can't tell how representative this is, but her band is an innovative exception to the usual jazz lineup. She makes frequent and excellent use of acoustic guitar, mandolin, violin, marimba and other unique sounds. My favorite cut is Sky & Sea a remake of Blue in Green with it's haunting melody and soulful longing. For similar projects check out Didi Bridgewater's cover of Horace Silver and Carmen McRae's album of Monk tunes. They don't make 'em like they used to but they sure can re-make 'em!
