Review by Scott Yanow A tribute by Cassandra Wilson to Miles Davis seems like a very logical idea, but this CD is actually less than one would expect. Wilson's deep voice gives a downbeat feel to the music, her lyrics for such Davis-associated songs as "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down," "Seven Steps to Heaven," "ESP," "Tutu" and "Blue in Green" are forgettable, and her interpretations smooth down most of the melodies, robbing them of their personality. Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" and "Someday My Prince Will Come" fare better, but most of the set (which includes three unrelated originals) is as boring as Cassandra Wilson's voice. Despite the presence of some notable all-stars (including Steve Coleman, Stefan Harris, Regina Carter and Pat Metheny), this is a misfire. -------------------- Entertainment Weekly (3/26/99, p.87) - "...Wilson emerges, again, as a bittersweet-toned visionary." Rating A-" Q (1/00, p.86) - Included in Q Magazine's "50 Best Albums of 1999." Q (7/99, p.125) - 3 stars (out of 5) - "...The arrangements are never less than interesting....the bravery of her concept is attractive, and her controlled, earthy voice is capable of rescuing most situations." Mojo (1/00, p.31) - Included in Mojo Magazine's "Best Jazz Albums" of 1999. Mojo (4/99, p.98) - "...will satisfy fans and go some way to swaying resisters. Overtly purposeful and rigorous, she combines treatments of Davis-associated material with original songs..." The Wire (6/99, p.65) - "...TRAVELING MILES is carefully designed to please....Wilson's lyrics sit well enough on this soft focus re-creation of BITCHES BREW-era churning funk..." CMJ (1/10/00, p.24) - Included in CMJ's "Jazz '99 Top 5." CMJ (3/29/99, p.3) - "...Wilson's long awaited studio follow-up to 1995's critically acclaimed NEW MOON DAUGHTER, is a stirring tribute to the wit, wisdom and kinetic spirit of Miles Davis..." JazzTimes (6/99, p.96) - "...overall luxuriant muscularity of conception grabs you slowly, surely....[Wilson's] approach is refreshing, weird, and something that stepped out of a dream, which, in the main, describes this jewel." Vibe (4/99, p.188) - "...TRAVELING is inspired by, and in homage to, the work of Miles Davis....The result is standard Wilson fare in its multi-textured eclecticism. She is as bluesy as she is folk and jazz..."
