30 Years Ago Today – Miles Davis Releases ‘Doo-Bop’- His Final Studio Album

30 years ago today (6/30/92), Miles Davis released Doo-Bop – his last studio album. This rather modern jazz record was recorded with hip-hop producer Easy Mo Bee and released posthumously on June 30, 1992. The title was a play on both the Doo-Wop and Be-Bop forms yet had a more hip-hop slanted overall sound. Although jazz purists and critics found it not up to par, it did win a Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. Revisit the video for the “The Doo-Bop” song off the album, perhaps his last video too.
