Russell Gunn Plays Miles

If one were attempting to design a prototype for the quintessential contemporary musician, trumpeter/fluegelhornist/composer Russell Gunn would be an ideal model. Perhaps no other jazz musician's music has crossed so many musical boundaries, has delighted as well as infuriated, has looked so far forward as well as back. Here Russell returns to the HighNote catalog paying homage to the progenitor of contemporary trumpet playing, Miles Davis. With his band of choice, Elektrik Butterfly, Russell fuses past and present into a riveting program which extends the already progressive style of Miles and quite possibly defines the future of jazz.
