    Hello,
    Does anyone have the Cassandra Wilson cd "Travelling Miles"?
    The picture on the back cover that looks like a pose from a Miles Davis photo shoot, does anyone know what that picture is? I think the Cassandra Wilson photo is a copy of a MD pic, and I'm dying to know which one! Went through all of my Miles stuff, no luck. Somebody help me!

    That Miles' DVD is excellent & can be picked up from the Downtown Music Gallery for about $14.
    In addition to the DVD, I think that cover photo has also popped up on a recent "Best Of Miles" 2-CD set.
    The 'original' source of the photo shoot? I'm not sure.
    (My guess is a Gil Evans' thing)

    Thanks guys! JimK, I was thinking it was a Gil Evans thing, but I wasn't having any luck. It does look like the cover of that dvd though. I do have it, and it is really good. Have you seen the new one about his electric stuff? I think it's great, I love it.

    It's a bit like the cover of "Milestones" - that era of CBS album covers?
