We Want MilesImport
We Want Miles is now available on vinyl after almost thirty years!
On the heels of releasing Miles' Bitches Brew Live album, Music On Vinyl is also releasing another Miles Davis album that has been on their wish list for quite some time.
'We Want Miles' is a collection of live recordings from Boston, New York (where he had played his last gig in 1975) and Tokyo from 1981, and they're among the first live recordings made after an extended hiatus.
But unlike his 1981 comeback album The Man With The Horn, on We Want Miles Davis has rediscovered his famed embouchure and this album was released to great critical acclaim in 1982, winning a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance on the way.
This is the first vinyl reissue since its original release in 1982, on double 180 grams audiophile vinyl in a Gatefold sleeve with its original artwork.
Playing with him are a level headed Marcus Miller on bass, Al Foster on drums, Mike Stern on guitar (not afraid to let it rip every once in a while), Mino Cinelu on percussion and Bill Evans holding his own on saxophone.Side 1

The Hard To Find Vinyl Masterwork 1972's Live In Toyko
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso
Pressed On 2 LP Limited Edition Translucent Red Vinyl At R.T.I.
The legendary Weather Report set the music world on fire back in the early seventies with their hypnotic blend of progressive-fused jazz with funk, prog-rock and soul, augmented with the brilliant and skillful musicianship of their superstar founders Wayne Shorter on saxophone and various electronic reeds and the late great Joe Zawinul on a stunning array of keyboards and electronic instruments.
Both of these legendary musicians/composers worked with Miles Davis on his classics like Bitches Brew, plus solid tenures with legends like Cannonball Adderley (Zawinul) and Art Blakey (Shorter) all of which would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come.
Throughout the seventies and beyond, Weather Report's fine arsenal of recordings would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. The 1972 fusion live masterpiece Live In Toyko would go on to yield one of the most important albums of their career as it hit the top rungs of the jazz charts, plus major showings in the pop and r&b charts.
No stone is left unturned, as this masterwork is loaded with stellar classics and long extensive live workouts on smashes like Wayne Shorter's Eurydice and Tears, the Shorter/Zawinul collaroration Umbrellas and Joe Zawinul favorite Orange Lady.
As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Live In Toyko in its original vinyl form took their fans by storm, paying hundreds of dollars for the original Japanese import if they were lucky to find one.
Friday Music is pleased to announce for the very first time on audiophile vinyl Live In Toyko by Weather Report. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, this amazing classic truly shines in the audiophile vinyl domain.
