Given the progressive trajectory of Miles Davis's career, and his genre-smashing tendencies, it's likely that if Miles Davis were alive today he'd be incorporating electronica and hip-hop into his jazz palette. The remix project EVOLUTION OF THE GROOVE imagines Miles in a contemporary context, taking classic Miles tracks and treating them with new production, beats, and overdubs from guest musicians including Nas, Carlos Santana, and others.
Nas's guest rap on "Freedom Jazz Dance" works surprisingly well, proving once again that Miles's music is so fluid and forward-thinking that it's adaptable to nearly any context. Elsewhere, Santana brings his soulful guitar work to "It's About That Time," and KIND OF BLUE's "Freddie Freeloader" gets a mid-tempo groove remix, but it's the dense, electronica re-visioning of "Honky Tonk" and "Black Satin," from Miles's electric period, that shine the brightest.
