Jez Nelson introduces a set recorded in June at Ronnie Scott 's, London. Composer and trumpeter Mark Isham moves easily amongthe worlds of classical, pop and jazz, while also enjoying a successful career as a film composer. His long fascination with Miles Davis 's electric period ensured he would always include a Miles tune in his live sets. Now, Miles Remembered/The Silent Way Project forms his homage to one of the most influential and controversial periods in Davis's career, transferring Davis producer Teo Macero 's studio techniques to a live setting. Isham's breaks and solos are offset by dual and single improvisations from guitarists Peter Maunu and Steve Cardenas. Producer Steve Shepherd
