That meant keyboards, sequencing, dub effects, drum machines and tonalities that often had the brightness and sharpness of the Fairlight era, something that is made all the more evident by the crisp sound of this re-issue.
Marcus Miller was the architect who built the sonic edifice for Davis, and the key thing was that he was a producer who could play as well as a player who could produce. But Miller brought more crystalline harmonic subtleties to the table. And great tunes. None are light. Some are positively heavy. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence.

Tutu has also gained many new fans thanks to the Tutu Revisited project, which was originally conceived as one-off concert. The project began when the organisers of a major Miles exhibition in Paris in asked Miller if he would play the entire Tutu album in concert. So, I was a little reluctant, but I wanted to pay a tribute to him, so I looked for an idea that might offset that negativity. I thought that if I could find some really great guys, although Miles might not have cared for me going backwards, he probably would have got a kick out of what we did.
Miller was determined not to play a carbon copy of the original album. I wanted to start at Tutu and see where we can take it. Such was the demand for the Tutu Revisited project, that it morphed from a one-off gig into two world tours, with Sean Jones formerly of the Lincoln Center Orchestra replacing Christian Scott on trumpet, and Louis Cato playing drums on the second tour. Miller recalls playing the Tutu album live the first time.
When you start playing the notes, they trigger memories of when Miles said this to me or how he reacted when he first heard that note. So the first few gigs were a trip, but eventually it got more comfortable. But the thing that struck me was that Miles never asked me any of those questions.
Miles is so much bigger than any of the individual albums that he made. Miles was committed to continue making relevant music, from day one to the day he died.
