Via Rough Trade:
A stunning new record of reimagined interpretations of Miles Davis‘ music produced by Grammy Award winner Robert Glasper (who also served as coproducer of the “Miles Ahead” soundtrack) with musical guest artists including Bilal, Illa J, Erykah Badu, Phonte, Hiatus Kaiyote, Laura Mvula, KING, Georgia Ann Muldrow, John Scofield and Ledisi, and Stevie Wonder. A visionary exploration of the music of Miles Davis, “Everything’s Beautiful” incorporates Davis’ original recordings into new collaborative soundscapes. ‘Everything’s Beautiful’ is unlike any other in Davis’ discography. From the familiar (riffs and passages within the catalog) to the obscure (samples of Miles’ in-studio instructions spoken after false starts), Glasper has built something unique but still unquestionably Miles. The cover art was created by Francine Turk and integrates elements of Miles Davis’ artwork. With the cover, Turk creates a visual that is similar to the idea of Robert Glasper taking fragments of Miles music and reinterpreting in a unique and modern way.
