Album: Decoy (1983)
Play Video


  • Written with keyboard player Robert Irving III, this was released 8 years before Davis' death. George Cole, author of The Last Miles: The Music of Miles Davis, 1980-1991, calls this, "an exciting track with a fantastic bass line by Darryl 'The Munch' Jones (who now plays with The Rolling Stones). Jones had learnt to play with tune using his fingers, but just as they were about to record a take, Miles spoke to Jones over the phone and told him to thumb it and it transformed the track."
