In 1985, Miles Davis shocked the music world by moving from Columbia to Warner Bros.. He immediately started working on an album called Perfect Way after a tune by Scritti Politti, later renamed Tutu by producer Tommy LiPuma. When Tutu (a tribute to Desmond Tutu) was released in 1986, it re-ignited Miles Davis’ career, crossing over into the rock and pop markets and winning Davis two Grammy Awards - the album was a key factor in raising Davis’ status to an international superstar. This deluxe edition includes: • The remastered album • A whole night’s performance of the Miles Davis Octet of Nice’s Jazz Festival of 1986 never available before • Liner notes by leading jazz writer Ashley Kahn, who interviewed Marcus Miller and Tommy LiPuma especially. • A lavish packaging in double digipack.
