Review Text An all-star sextet comprised of trumpeter Claudio Roditi, altoist Donald Harrison, tenor saxophonist Ricky Ford, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Larry Gales, and drummer Joe Chambers are gathered together on this live CD as the Candid Jazz Masters. The band pays tribute to Miles Davis, performing seven songs recorded by Davis during the 1954-1959 period, including "Milestones," "All Blues," "Walkin'," and "If I Were a Bell." In addition, they perform Ricky Ford's "Milestrane," which is in the style of the late-'50s Miles Davis/John Coltrane groups. No one really tries to sound like Davis or Coltrane (Ford's main influence is actually Dexter Gordon, while Roditi has a sound of his own), and overall this was just a good excuse to play these superior songs. Fine music. ~ Scott Yanow
