In 1985, Miles Davis shocked the music world by moving from Columbia Records to Warner Bros. and started recording Rubberband. This album marked a radical departure for him, with funk and soul grooves, and was to include vocals by Al Jarreau and Chaka Khan.

Produced by Miles Davis, Randy Hall and Zane Giles, the line-up boasted Miles on trumpet and keyboards, keyboardists Adam Holzman, Neil Larsen and Wayne Linsey, percussionist Steve Reid, saxophonist Glen Burris, and Miles’s nephew Vince Wilburn Jr., on drums.

Engineered by Reggie Dozier (brother of Lamont Dozier, part of the legendary Motown songwriting team), the Rubberband sessions took place at Ameraycan Studios in Los Angeles from October 1985 to January 1986. The album was subsequently shelved, and Miles went on to record Tutu. “It was fat grooves, really funky, Miles talking. It was street and funky and dirty.

We didn’t go after writing a great jazz song, Miles wanted the street thing; he wanted the chord changes he wanted to play. The basis was to take it to the street like On the Corner, it was Miles taking more chances,” said Randy Hall. Zane Giles added, “Miles kept saying ‘I don’t wanna do my usual stuff. I wanna do something different.”

32 years after Rubberband was recorded, the original producers, Randy Hall and Zane Giles, teamed up with Miles’s nephew, Vince Wilburn, Jr., to finish and update the title track. In September 2017, they invited soulful singer Ledisi to guest on vocals at the Village Studios in Los Angeles.

Meek Mill will be released from prison today, TMZ reports. His sentence, handed down by controversial Judge Genece Brinkley, was reportedly overturned by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania after a series of appeals from his legal team. In a statement to TMZ, Meek said the following:

“I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team atRoc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend MichaelRubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time.

While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits,calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive.

To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice – not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxuryand I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.”
