2 stars Last Miles Davis studio album is a real disappointment. Not because he plays hip-hop there, it 's not a first time playing such music in his career. Just there is not music enough on these recordings, that's the reason.

Who could imagine Miles' last album will be played (?) or ,better, made by studio engineers. OK, besides of Miles there is one more (!) live musician - rapper J.R. All other sounds are loops and rhythm machines with simplistic Miles trumpet soloing over them. And the main problem is not only the music isn't alive enough, but it is far not NY street raw sound. It's simplistic polished studio sound (very close to European acid jazz). Nothing to add - happily there are few melodies, but not strong enough to add even minimal spices to this tragic brew.

Possibly, could be used for DJ mixing... have no other idea how to use this music.
