About this item
30 years ago, in May and June 1985, Miles Davis signed with Warner Bros Records, shocking the music world by leaving Columbia. He immediately started working on an album to be called 'Perfect Way', named after a tune by Scritti Politti, but later renamed 'Tutu' by producer Tommy LiPuma. When 'Tutu' (a tribute to Desmond Tutu) was released in 1986, it re-ignited Miles Davis’ career, winning him two Grammy Awards. The record reflected the 80s, just as Herbie’s 'Rockit' did. That meant keyboards, sequencing, dub effects, drum machines and tonalities that often had the brightness and sharpness of the Fairlight era. This album was a key factor in raising Davis’ status to an international superstar.
