RACHA FORA/Racha S’miles: Music is the universal language? Jazz is the universal language? How about Miles is the universal language? A few years ago we had an Indian Miles Davis cross pollination that was pretty special. How about this time around we have a Brazilian interpretation of Miles by a Japanese flute player that’s also pretty special?
A student of George Russell with the sense to bring Dave Liebman along for this ride, leader Hiroaki Honshuku does a great job of nailing a nu Miles tangent well after you’ve thought you’ve heard it all. A nu cut road on a well worn path, this set is a winner throughout.
