2017 Grammy Winning Soundtrack!

2017 Grammy Award:
• Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media

Soundtrack To Miles Davis Biopic Featuring 12 tracks performed by Miles Davis and dialogue from the movie. Guest performances by Robert Glasper, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Gary Clark, Jr., Esperanza Spalding and even Don Cheadle!

Columbia/Legacy commemorates the 90th birthday of globally renowned music innovator Miles Davis with the release of two very special new Miles Davis album projects; MILES AHEAD – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and "Everything's Beautiful", reimagined interpretations of Miles Davis' music produced by Grammy winning Robert Glasper.

The Miles Ahead biopic is a cinematic exploration of the life and music of Miles Davis. The film marks the directorial debut of Don Cheadle, who co-wrote the screenplay (with Steven Baigelman) and stars as the legendary musician in the film.

The release of the movie MILES AHEAD, Don Cheadle’s wildly entertaining and moving exploration of Miles Davis, is accompanied by the soundtrack featuring musical highlights from Miles’ career and new recordings overseen by Grammy Award-winning jazz/hip-hop artist Robert Glasper.

This is a perfect primer on Davis’ career for the new fan and a brilliant audio keepsake of the film for those who’ve studied his works inside and out. The album features 11 tracks from across Miles’ catalogue from 1956 to 1981, select dialogue from the film featuring Cheadle in character, and five original compositions written, co-written, produced or performed exclusively for MILES AHEAD by Robert Glasper. These cues include “What’s Wrong with That?” a jam that closes the movie imagining Cheadle as Miles playing in the present day with guest performers Glasper, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Gary Clark, Jr. and Esperanza Spalding; plus “Gone 2015,” an end-credits song featuring guest verses from rapper Pharoahe Monch. Cheadle also pens new liner notes for the album discussing the selection and creation of the songs on the soundtrack.

Keyon Harrold, a sought out trumpeter/producer/arranger/songwriter who performs with GRAMMY-winning group D'Angelo and The Vanguard, is featured as the trumpet sound of Don Cheadle playing Miles Davis.
