Miles Davis' Tutu

Miles Davis' Tutu
Sunday 30th September

When analysing Miles Davis’ hugely influential back catalogue, it may be easy to overlook his 1986 masterpiece, Tutu. 

Tutu, much like Kind Of Blue and Bitches Brew, is a hugely revolutionary album. Instead of recording the album with live instruments and a band, Davis recorded his trumpet parts over a lush electronic soundscape, produced from a battery of samplers, synthesisers, sequencers and drum machines. Although synthesisers had long been used in jazz, no jazz artist had ever made an album like Tutu.

With this record, Davis again changed the story of jazz trying to reflect the society at that moment in the music. The current narrative for the London jazz scene, mirrors Davis’ work back in ’86, and aptly taking on the album will be London based fast rising quintet PYJAEN.

A band with its common link in improvised music and the jazz tradition, PYJAEN have a vision of pushing music forward in new directions, with influences ranging from rock, and afrobeat to hip hop and jazz fusion.
