  1. Miles Away

From the recording Miles Away

This track is off of the 2000 Concord Picante Pete Escovedo release entitled "E Music". I first met Pete in 1988 while I was on a west coast tour with legendary Mongo Santamaria. It was a great honor meeting Pete. I was a huge fan of his work with his orchestra and as a member of the cutting edge band "Azteca". Pete and I became good friends after our meeting on that tour. I was honored to be asked to appear as a guest on this CD.
This is an original by yours truly. It's a tribute to one of my favorite musicians ever; Miles Dewey Davis. Miles' passing in 1991 left a void in the music business that could never be filled again.

Here are the players on this session-
Pete Escovedo-Timbales/Percussion, Sheila E- Drums, Joe Rotondi-Piano, Oskar Cartaya-Basses, Ray Obiedo-Guitars, Justo Almario-Saxes, Ramon Flores and RV-Trumpets, Wayne Wallace and Francisco Torres-Trombones.
