    SIRIUS Satellite Radio - The Best in Classic Jazz and Chicago Jazz


    From November 20 (at 3 pm ET) until November 25, Real Jazz will become Miles Davis Radio. Miles Davis Radio, hosted by Davis’ son Erin Davis, his nephew, drummer Vince Wilburn Jr. and legendary bassist, producer and writer Marcus Miller, will feature music from Davis’ extensive catalog, which includes over one hundred albums. Listeners will hear composer and former Miles Davis music director Robert Irving III premiere never before heard soundtrack music recorded by Davis for the 1986 film Wise Guys. In addition, the channel is scheduled to include special segments and interviews with former Davis band members and various guests, including drummer Jimmy Cobb, pianist Herbie Hancock, guitarist John Scofield, pianist Monty Alexander, record executives Bruce Lundvall and Clive Davis, Davis’ long-time road manager Gordon Meltzer, bassist Ron Carter, guitarist Carlos Santana, Rolling Stones bassist Darryl “Munch†Jones and friend and peer Quincy Jones. Words and music will also be devoted to different phases of Davis’ career including stories from the legend himself. Courtesy of CBS News, excerpts from the 1989 60 Minutes interview with the late Harry Reasoner will be aired and musician/broadcaster Ben Sidran contributes his 1989 conversation conducted on the beach at Davis’ Malibu home.

    Channel 72 on Sirius, 70 on XM.
