RON MILES I AM A MAN Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
'I am a Man', Ron Miles's newest recording with Bill Frisell and Brian Blade, expands the trio to a quintet with the addition of pianist Jason Moran and bassist Thomas Morgan. The sublime interplay that distinguished the Circuit Rider trio recordings 'Quiver' (2012) and 'Circuit Rider' (2014), reaches new levels of inspired musical communication. Ron Miles 's lyrical and complex compositions provide the perfect framework for five masters who blur the boundaries of conventional soloing and accompanying in a constant ebb and flow marked by brilliant harmonizing and strokes of individual genius. "Ron Miles is one of the finest trumpeters in jazz today. I can't come up with a compelling reason why he should be anything other than a major name." -JazzTimes "Miles plays brilliantly, singing the melodies with a tone bright and vocalized, tinged with melancholy." - Down Beat
