180 Gram LP



Deluxe edition gatefold 180-gram double LP

Thirty years ago in 1985, Miles Davis shocked the music world by moving from Columbia to Warner Bros. Records. He immediately started working on an album called Perfect Way after a tune by Scritti Politti, later renamed Tutu by producer Tommy Lipuma. When Tutu (a tribute to Desmond Tutu) was released in 1986, it re-ignited Davis' career, crossing over into the rock and pop markets and winning the Prince of Darkness two Grammy Awards. The album was a key factor in raising Davis' status to an international superstar. 

This deluxe edition includes the original Tutu album remastered on LP and an extra LP of a previously unavailable live performance from the Miles Davis Octet at Nice's jazz festival in 1986. The packaging is a replica of the original vinyl album, including stickers, LP labels and Irving Penn's beautiful and iconic photographs. The 180-gram 2LP set also features liner notes by leading jazz writer Ashley Kahn, who interviewed Marcus Miller and Tommy Lipuma especially for the reissue.
