Doo-Bop was Miles Davis’ final studio album, which would have marked the beginning of his turn to hip-hop-oriented tracks. However, Davis died on September 28, 1991, at which time only six pieces for the album had been completed. To finish off the album, producer Easy Mo Bee was asked to take some of the unreleased trumpet performances, and build tracks that Miles ‘would have loved’ around the recordings. The album’s posthumous tracks (as stated in the liner notes) are “High Speed Chase” and “Fantasy”. Enjoy!
