Tutu = Japanese = (CD)
Jazz's most famous son is given godly status for his work in the 50s - as in Kind of Blue - and the 70s - as in Bitches Brew. The 80s remains a dubious period of his discography. Tutu casts doubt on that received wisdom. Although it is still dismissed by many as 'lightweight' or, worse still, 'pop-fusion', the album, whose striking monochrome sleeve stylized the trumpeter's austere, sculptural, late-years beauty, had something that captured the imagination of many outside of the world of jazz. And it wasn't just the romance of Davis coming back to the fray, like some of the boxers from whom he drew inspiration, after several years on the ropes. If 1982's We Want Miles was a clarion call for the idea that he was still relevant to music, specifically, and culture, generally, then 1986's Tutu was proof positive that he could touch people without sounding dated. That was the whole point. The record reflected the 80s, just as Herbie's Rockit did. That meant keyboards, sequencing, dub effects, drum machines and tonalities that often had the brightness and sharpness of the Fairlight era, something that is made all the more evident by the crisp sound of this re-issue.
