How was that?  I need to get around to it.

Some good writing. Most tracks are very quiet - a vocal, piano or guitar. Worth a listen.

are any of the post hiatus miles davis records good?

Not in my opinion.  Risking blowback from Wilf and/or Sneak,  I am happy to no longer own "On The Corner" or ever have to hear any of it again.  I saw Miles several times in his later years and he was certainly not interested in playing live - he did 5 minutes with back to the audience, walked off or stopped playing for 15 minutes or so, then back on for another half hearted 5.  Good members of his band each time, lucky for us, but the material sucked.  I think the same of his recordings and assume that they weren't heart felt in the least.
