Miles and Miles Of Jazz Underground

This installment of Notes From The Jazz Underground features the playlist based on the November 1st show.

This was an uncharacteristially short show, based all around electric Miles. It features the whole A Tribute to Jack Johnson album, some Weather Report, and in Paul's assessment, the greatest of the Miles' alumnus bands:  Tony Williams Lifetime.  TW gets few nods in this playlist, both from Tony himself, a couple of tribute bands (Spectrum Road and Trio Beyond) and as a part of Stan Getz' band along with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, and Airto.

The only curveball here is Robert Glasper, who is at the center of a whole bunch of controversy on the Chicago jazz scene at the moment over bringing his hip hop group to the Chicago Jazz Festival. Other than that, just listen.

Notes From The Jazz Underground runs Friday nights on WDCB 90.9 FM.
