Miles Davis was an intense presence in concert as he pointed his trumpet straight toward the floor of the stage as if he were calling up and communing with powerful forces hidden deep inside the Earth. The clarion-call trumpet sounds Davis created were always a fierce and searing, otherworldly force of nature, whether he was playing it cool in the 1950s or defying stodgy critics in the late 1960s and early ’70s when he defiantly expanded his range and plugged in electrically for his own boldly thrilling mutations of funk, soul and rock. Such a legendary figure can hardly be replaced, but Davis’ drummer-nephew Vince Wilburn Jr. carries on the anti-tradition of the trumpeter’s electric period with musicians from Miles’ later bands, including pianist John Beasley, trumpeter Christian Scott, percussionist Munyungo Jackson and Rolling Stones bassist Darryl Jones.
