For this unique project, Bob Belden collaborated with a contingent of Spanish musicians at Sear Sound Studios to create the musical adventure Miles Espanol to be released on Entertainment One Music.Conceived and produced by Bob Belden in conjunction with executive producers Chuck Mitchell and Eli Cane, this double-CD contains selected material drawn from Miles Davis' Sketches Of Spain and Kind Of Blue. More than 30 musicians assembled to reinvent the music of Davis and create their own compositions including Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, pianist Chano Domingez, drummer Alex Acuna, flautist Jorge Pardo, Sonny Fortune, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Rabih Abu-Khalil. Some of the musicians are former Miles sidemen, some are flamenco masters from Spain, some are from North Africa, and some are prominent figures in New York's Latin Jazz scene.Tim Hagans, Scott Kinsey, and Vince Wilburn Jr. (Miles Davis' nephew). Many of the performers worked alongside Davis onstage and in the studio.
