1989 Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl LP!
Released in 1989, Amandla was the third and final collaboration between Miles Davis and producer/bassist Marcus Miller. The album features elements of go-go, zouk, funk, and jazz. Cover art by Miles Davis and Jo Gelbard.
“A particularly strong set by late-period Miles Davis, this LP is highlighted by a surprisingly straight-ahead performance titled “Mr. Pastorius.” In addition to Davis and his new altoist Kenny Garrett, various guests (including Marcus Miller, guitarist Jean-Paul Bourelly, Joey DeFrancesco on keyboards, Rick Margitza on tenor, pianist Joe Sample, and bassist Foley) get their chances to play next to the great legend who is in top form. An excellent effort, it was really his last studio recording with his regular band.” – allmusic.com
