Miles-from-India

From the Soundboard is a show that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, April 23, we are will going to focus on the Indo-Jazz-Fusion project called Miles from India. “It was such a simple concept. Producer Bob Belden (who has directed the Miles Davis reissue series) was talking with Times Square label owner Yusuf Gandhi about Miles’ use of Indian instrumentation during The Complete On the Corner Sessions and wondered aloud what it would sound like if Indian musicians played Miles’ music. Gandhi replied Miles from India, and nearly a year later Belden delivered this brilliant set that not only features a number of India’s finest musicians but a veritable who’s who of Miles’ own sidemen. In perhaps the boldest move, Belden and the musicians looked well beyond Miles’ 1972-1975 sessions with Indian instruments for inspiration, performing tracks from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.” [Sean Westergaard – All Music Guide] FTSB-new-card1
