I think every jazz enthusiast will know this record of Davis` electric jazz-pop period in the 80`s. It isn`t the best Davis ever made, but it was hip then and made jazz popular, what purists disliked much. Anyway, Miles was ahead the jazz scene once again with that sound he created. Who will listen to Cindy Lauper`s original version of Time After Time nowadays (although it`s a beautiful song)? Listening to Davis` interpretation is a pleasure still. And big arenas were crowded when Davis toured the world in the 80`s. Who else did that in jazz history? It was jazz-pop-rock fusion of the highest standard.
Unfortunately the sound of the recording sharp and edgy, making it impossible to turn up the volume as much as it should be for listening to that music.

Performance:   Sonics:
I saw Miles several times when he performed "Time After Time" in the 80s. I have always loved his performance of the song, though I didn't love my CD of it. At last I have a recording that I can revel in, which feels so much closer to the spirit of the concerts I heard.
The disc is worth the price for that track alone. The other tracks show some variety; comic impressions of his arrest; jazz bordering on funk; strange interludes.

The original recording is bright, i.e. treble heavy, and this SACD is faithful to that. The tone of Miles trumpet is gorgeous, sounding much more immediate than in the earlier recordings that have been transferred to SACD. This is possibly the best Miles on SACD for sonic quality.
