Miles Davis' long-lost album Rubberband is finally available after being shelved for over 30 years. A mini-documentary has been produced that recounts the long journey the album has taken from recording to release with commentary from original producers Randy Hall and Zane Giles, Davis’ nephew and drummer/producer Vince Wilburn Jr, guest vocalists Lalah Hathaway and Ledisi, and more. 

Watch the doco below. 

Marking a radical departure in musical direction, in 1985 Mile Davis began recording the album Rubberband in Los Angeles at Ameraycan Studios with producers Hall and Giles. With the inclusion of funk and soul grooves; with plans to feature guest vocalists Al Jarreau and Chaka Khan, however, the album was shelved and Davis went on to record Tutu, leaving the Rubberband songs unheard and untouched for decades, until now!
