 15 years after his death Miles Davis is still the world’s most venerated and most imitated trumpeter. There have been countless acts of homage to his art, from shameless plagiarism to impressive tribute events like this one, recorded on the stage of the Jazz Open Festival in Stuttgart in July 1994 and titled ESP 2. TDK presents this concert in a one-hour live recording.

Recalling the title of a famous 1965 Miles Davis album, a group of his former band members reunited in 1991 under the name ESP and embarked on a tour in honour of the recently deceased jazz trumpeter. They returned in 1994, appearing as ESP 2 in a yet another tribute to Davis three years after his death. The concert also served to satisfy fans’ desires for more Miles Davis concerts, even without the great man himself.

Miles Davis influenced his fellow musicians strongly and will probably continue to do so for generations of jazz musicians to come. He is the most-listened-to jazz trumpeter, not to say jazz musician ever, with his soft, cool sound and economical style representing a negation of all that marks out the trumpet in jazz. The moment he put the Harmon mute in his trumpet and began a ballad, he moved countless listeners, including those to whom jazz otherwise meant nothing. The touchingly beautiful, even ethereal sound of his trumpet formed a striking contrast to the sound of his voice, the huskiness of which underlined the coarseness of his forceful utterances.

The man, whom critics could not forgive for playing with his back to the audience, or for introducing more trends in the course of his career than they could digest, was himself a stern critic. He was as mercilessly frank as he was enigmatically taciturn: a brilliant bandleader who came across as authoritarian and strict, always getting what he wanted from his musicians, but rarely explaining what that was and giving them a good deal of freedom in the process.

Those who played for Miles Davis, not only matured musically, but also climbed the first steps on the ladder to a career of their own. But it is also true that his handpicked sidemen were the cohorts who allowed him to tread the new paths that broadened out into highways of musical development.

The musicians of ESP 2 represent the last 10 years in the creative life of a musician who – as a bandleader and talent scout no less than as a composer or performer – changed the face of jazz for all time.
