CD reissue. On this 1983 release, Miles Davis rediscovers the blues. Beside the members of the band from the We Want Miles album, the recordings feature John Scofield for the first time, who worked alongside Mike Stern in Davis' band in late 1982 and early 1983 before Stern's departure later in the year. Marcus Miller played on five of the six tracks and would later be replaced by Tom Barney, Al Foster and Mino Cinelu are heard on drums and percussion. Miles Davis plays trumpet and Oberheim synthesizer often at the same time (without using overdubs) and also on separately recorded interludes for the over 18-minute long blues "Star People".
