That You Not Dare To Forget from M.E.B. (formerly Miles Electric Band), led by Vince Wilburn, Jr., collects a progressive all-star ensemble featuring Miles Davis alumni and the players Miles inspired.
This brand new, never-released studio recording captures a multi-generational who’s who of acclaimed artists performing new Miles-inspired compositions. Two tracks of the five on the album include unreleased trumpet performances by Miles and the album, produced by Miles' alumni Lenny White and Vince Wilburn Jr, features music legends including Ron Carter, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Donald Harrison, Darryl Jones, Vernon Reid, John Scofield, and more.
The album is dedicated to the memory of Wallace Roney and Bernard Wright and contains some of their final recordings, and the cover is an original painting from another Miles’ associate, artist Mikel Elam.
M.E.B. (formerly Miles Electric Band) is a progressive All-Star ensemble featuring Miles Davis alumni that revises the framework for modern jazz improvisation. The avant-garde collective revisits repertoire from Davis’ electric period to pay homage to The Chief. The band represents two generations of players: Davis’ contemporaries and the next generation of music all stars. This is a rotating ensemble of master musicians. The highly eclectic group was put together by Emmy and Grammy winning producer/drummer Vince Wilburn, Jr., with the intention to continue expanding the boundaries of music, while also paying homage to the classics.
