KEN PRUE PRESENTS
FIVE WEEKS FOR MILES
WEEK 5: DOO-BOP, HAD HE LIVED...

MARCH 29 • 7pm

Towards the end of Miles' life he began an exploration of another sub-component of modern popular music - hip-hop.  The "Doo-bop" recording (Warner,'92) would feature rappers and loops and would have marked the beginning of Miles' exploration or this artform.  It is often harshly referred to by critics as his "worst" documented recording and as a "forgettable" era of his life, but it still stands strongly as a prime example of the Milesian ethic - his ability to recognize "what's next" and creatively move within and extend that artform.  Brownman states "I believe it is extremely probable that Miles would have worked closely with the likes of Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Rakim, Guru, Big Daddy Kane, junglists, DJs, rappers, beat-makers alike... had he lived.  Tonight will be a salute to what MIGHT have been."
