Jazz fans, brace yourselves – a new record from Miles Davis is coming. Well, it's not exactly new; it was recorded over 30 years ago. The year was 1985, Davis had established himself as jazz royalty following his 1959 release Kind Of Blue and he made the rogue decision to move from Columbia Records to Warner Bros. One of his first compositions under the new label was Rubberband. The cultural shift in the Eighties had a mega impact on his writing process and this recording supposedly introduced funk and soul grooves to his music. Sounds pretty pioneering, right? So why on earth has it taken over 30 years for it to be scheduled for release?
