2. F-word

Wallace Roney crafted his sound to be a lot like Miles'. He caught flak for that, but it was also somewhat thrilling to be able to listen to someone in his physical and musical prime who sounded like a re-incarnation of Miles when he was at the top of his game in the 50's and 60's. Right before Miles died, he went back to the Montreaux Jazz Festival at the urging and under the direction of Quincy Jones, and reprised some of the orchestral jazz music from the Sketches of Spain album. Wallace Roney was selected to be there as backup for Miles on the most strenuous passages.
