Double Rainbow is a greta tribue to Miles, with beautiful birts of raw energy & electricity.

Great sound, with keyboard wizard Kikuchi.

But check also the very great "HIP SEAGULL" (1978), the wonderful "MAY DANCE" (1977) which fature John Scofield on guitar, and the more funky la head hunters kind of thing : "CITY CONNEXION" (1979) : a nice & sexy album without any kind of vulgarity.

Another great album of prehistoric fusion or electric jazz inspired by Miles : 1969's Hi-Nology.

Hino, is heavy on the percussion accompaniment ; this fact will please kozmigroov aficionados.

A fine trumpeter influenced by Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis, Terumasa Hino has long been one of Japan's best jazz musicians. A professional since 1955, Hino has mostly become known to Americans since the 1970s due to his Enja recordings, although some of his albums were made available domestically by Catalyst, Inner City, and Blue Note. He moved to the U.S. in 1975, where he worked with Gil Evans, Jackie McLean, Dave Liebman, and Elvin Jones. Hino spent more of his time in Japan after the early '80s, and recorded in several different styles ranging from straight-ahead to fusion.

it would have been "Merry Go Round"

Filthy tune

Gonna have to nominate "Double Rainbow" for full KG status. Its late ('81) but mostly avoids fusionesque rambling in favor of a Miles pre-retirement electric thing. Arranged by Kikuchi and Gil Evans, cast includes Alias, Grossman, Hancock, Airto and the usual suspects. I think I saw a track list for a proposed Jazz Satellites II (never came out) that included a tune from this LP.
