RUBBERBAND IS THE LOST MILES DAVIS ALBUM he recorded as soon as he signed to Warner Bros., after decades with Columbia. It marked a radical departure for Davis, looking forward as usual and incorporating funk and soul grooves in his work. Produced by Davis, Randy Hall and Zane Giles, the Rubberband sessions were recorded in Los Angeles from October 1985 to January 1986 – the album was subsequently shelved and Davis went on to record Tutu instead, leaving these sessions largely unheard … until now.
The entire 11-song RUBBERBAND album will make its debut on September 6 on CD and 2-LP 180g vinyl. It was finished by the original producers – Hall and Giles – and Davis’ nephew, Vince Wilburn, Jr., who played drums on the original sessions for the album in 1985-86. Order the album now and get the track “Rubberband Of Life,” featuring 12-time GRAMMY nominee Ledisi.
