Miles Davis, jazz's most prolific experimenter, collaborated with hip-hop producer Easy Mo Bee for what became the trumpeter's last album. Davis injects his cool, muted sound throughout the song, which is orchestrated over a familiar piano riff. The only downside to this song is that the rapping halfway through kind of dampens the mood; but still this record proves why Davis could float between musical styles like it was no one's business.
