A number of big names in '90s jazz gather to pay tribute to Miles Davis on Endless Miles, with most of the prominently featured musicians owing their primary allegiances to hard bop (although not exclusively). The lineups generally vary from track to track, although pianist Geri Allen, ex-Davis Quintet tenor saxophonist George Coleman, drummer Jimmy Cobb, and trumpeter Randy Brecker seem to be the ringleaders. Only two of the selections are actual Davis compositions ("So What" and "No Blues"), but the other selections -- including "In a Silent Way," "Nefertiti," "Walkin'," and "The Sorcerer" -- are so identified with him that it doesn't really matter. Naturally, nobody plays Davis like Davis himself, but these are credible interpretations, even if they tend to be more on the reverent and conservative side.
