John Scofield, Robert Glasper & More Took Miles Davis’s Voice And Made It Into An Awesome Song

first_imgRenowned jazz musician Robert Glasper is set to release his tribute to Miles Davis, titled Everything’s Beautiful, on May 27th. In anticipation, Glasper has shared one exciting cut from the new album; a track entitled “I’m Leaving You.”“I’m Leaving You” features work from John Scofield and Ledisi, and was entirely inspired by a recording of Davis saying a three-word phrase, “wait a minute.” The whole album blends Davis’s extensive body of work, including outtakes and master recordings, to put together something new and beautiful. Glasper explains his thought process behind “I’m Leaving You” in the premiere article featured in Essence.“I found a clip of Miles saying “wait a minute”—just that simple phrase—and it had so much of his classic swag in it, and it had such a rhythm, I decided to build that whole track around that and that’s how it started,” said Glasper. “After that it was a real group thing: (Ledisi) wrote the lyric, my man Black Milk took a Lenny White drum pattern and chopped it up for the beat, and that’s John Scofield—who is our direct link to Miles for this project, having been in his ’80s band. That brought it full circle. I love the R&B uplift this track gives the whole project!”Listen to “I’m Leaving You” below:Glasper commented on the whole album as well, saying “I like that this whole record has a smoky, late-night vibe that is consistent through almost all the tracks but that really just happened naturally. No one told anyone what tempo or mood to go for, so the track with Ledisi really stands out. You know she’s a super jazz geek anyway, and can sing the heads of almost any bop tune you want to name. I’ve seen her do it!”The full album features contributions from Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote, Bilal, Illa J and so many more, in celebration of what would have been Davis’s 90th birthday.

A matchup versus Homer Bailey makes that an easy decision. It is a matter of time before the bombs start coming for Pham, but in the meantime, he is getting a bunch of steals to soften the blow.For more player recommendations and analysis, become a Fantasy Alarm subscriber today!                                                                                                                                                 Pos PlayerMatchupOpp. SPDKFDY!AnalysisSPD.

He has been great this season and gets a poor Angels offense that is atrocious once you get around Mike Trout. I prefer him in cash on FD, but he is usable in GPPs on DK, too.Austin Barnes, C, Dodgers @ Cubs.  Barnes has traditionally hit lefties better than righties, so while the result have been shaky thus far, a matchup with Jose Quintana could be what helps him shake the rust off. He is cheap but also risky, so save him for your GPPs.MORE: Tuesday DK Lineup | Tuesday SP rankingsEdwin Encarnacion, 1B, Mariners vs. Padres.  E5 has been great this season, with a .824 OPS and six home runs. He should have plenty of opportunity for anotherd dinger versus Nick Margevicius, who gets creamed when he leaves the ball in the zone.Garrett Hampson, 2B, Rockies vs. Nationals.  Hampson has been batting in the top of the lineup against lefthanded pitching. Tonight he gets Patrick Corbin, who has been a stud, but it’s in Colorado and he is dirt cheap.Fernando Tatis Jr., SS, Padres @ Mariners.  Tatis has crushed the ball this season, but more surprisingly he has hit for average, as well. He faces off today against rookie Erik Swanson. For a mid-tier option, he is pretty decent.Travis Shaw, 3B, Brewers @ Cardinals.  Shaw is the top 3B value play for us on both DraftKings and FanDuel today largely because he is so cheap. He has struggled this season, but it is a matter of time before he breaks out of the slump. Tonight he faces Daniel Ponce De Leon, so this is a good day to gamble on the huge discount.
