i believe Tribute to JJ was a studio album that was used as a soundtrack, but wasn't originally recorded as such. excuse me while i go listen to that now

Love this one, sorta underrated for Miles. I especially like Diner Au Motel. I always wondered if the movie was suited to the soundtrack, or vice versa.

IIRC, Miles laid out the harmonies beforehand, but the score was improv recorded while the band was watching the film on a bigscreen.

Some exquisite work on this album. Just what you would expect with god blowing a trumpet.

First off, I'd like to thank you for posting this beautiful piece of music, it is wonderful.

As this played through my speakers, my dad came in, the avid jazz listener he is instantly recognizing it and praising me for playing it. It was the first conversation I have had with my dad that didn't involve school or criticism in a really long time, so I thank you, albeit indirectly, for that as well.

@poetichigh, that's cute but also awesome at the same time! Thanks for posting that; it makes us all here at WFLM HQ feel like we matter "that" much more in people's lives. Like people still actually give a damn about good music.

Only score? Don't forget The Hot Spot - Miles and John Lee Hooker together. (and Jack Nitzsche!) One of the odder collaboration albums of the 80s. Was it 80s? Very late 80s maybe. I think I have a copy on a shelf here somewhere though I haven't listened to it in ages.

80s Miles doesn't count, because it's mostly garbage. Tutu is one of the worst albums i've ever spent money on
