Former Miles Davis sidemen, Spanish flamenco masters, New York City Latin jazz stars and North African players are among those here reimagining tunes from Davis’ classic Sketches of Spain and Kind of Blue albums or performing originals inspired by those releases. Lots of different arrangements of “Concierto de Aranjuez,” one of the main tracks from Sketches, have been heard but none so exotic sounding as the version here with its melody delicately-picked on the oud, bassoon lurking in the background and Alex Acuna whipping up a storm on bongos.

Pianist Chick Corea wrote “Trampolin” just for this session and performs it here in a quartet setting featuring Jorge Pardo, Antonio Sanchez and legendary bassist Ron Carter. Another excellent original is “El Swing;” written by guitarist John Scofield and performed with a quartet rounded out by Corea, Jack DeJohnette and Eddie Gomez; it is one of many songs here very Davis-like in composition even though it is completely devoid of trumpet. Open-minded Davis fans should love this set, especially offerings like the traditional “Solea,” again featuring stellar oud playing from Rabih Abou-Khalil and flamenco guitar work from Jaco Abel.
