Although there are a host of other notable namesakes, this album pays homage to the world renown boxer of the early 20th century.

The Good: There are many things I love about this album but my particular favourite is the way it 'went down'. The opening track doesn't feature Miles Davis for the first few minutes because he was late to his own recording session, so the other musicians got bored and just started jamming without him! This nonchalant approach to music making of the highest caliber is almost inconceivable today, but I guess when your 'other musicians' include the likes of John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock and Billy Cobham then one might actually call it inevitable. The all star cast does not disappoint and the result is one of Davis' very finest records of this era, on a par with In a Silent Way.

The Bad: Nothing really. Although if I was pushed I would say some sections of Hereafter are a little too abstract for my taste.

The Verdict: Well worth the wait.

Starhammer | 4/5 |
