Miles Davis – That’s What Happened Radio Special

Miles Davis changed the direction of jazz music many times over his long career. The early 80's were no different, as Miles hand-picked a new batch of musicians to bring his jazz-rock fusion to life. In this one-hour special, we hear bootleg recordings, outtakes and more that show Miles' creative process. Band members Vince Wilburn, Jr, Marcus Miller, Mike Stern and John Scofield tell stories of their time playing with Miles during this era.
