Lately I've been revisiting the electric Miles Davis stuff again, Get Up With It being a particular favorite. Just yesterday I was checking out the movie Miles Electric: A Different Kind of Blue and was really happy to see a movie in which the musicians were both allowed to talk and play more than usual. In fact, I think Stanley Crouch was the only critic in the film! Anyhow, I'm not here to offer a review, but just share some of the inspiration that the film and Miles and the other musicians gave me. I especially loved Airto's segment.
