How the Music Critic Score works
Miles Davis and his electric — if rarely electrifying — septet were captured in action at the 1989 Paris Jazz Festival. Miles in Paris is in five selections, stitched together by brief and unrevealing snippets from an interview, he wanders the stage, trumpet pointed at the floor, and sustains a generally pleasant lilt. This isn’t the Miles of legend, the brilliant improviser celebrated for his urgent lyricism and fiery arpeggios.
