World Saxophone Quartet featuring Jack DeJohnette: Selim Sivad
The expanded quartet expresses a clear appreciation for the wide range of styles explored by Miles Davis during his career, while endowing the (mostly) Davis compositions with its own personal touch. Of course, it's an ambitious project to interpret the works of Miles Davis using four saxophones and four drummersbut amazingly, the WSQ succeeds.
