“Vibe” features a new generation of young players whose performances, though grounded in the jazz tradition, bring their individual voices to the project. “Vibe” is about energy, reflection and chemistry. On “Vibe,” the vision of Steps Ahead was to capture the feeling, spirit, and ‘vibe’ embodied in the historic recording of Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue.” The album is dedicated to the memory of the immortal collaboration between Miles and Bill Evans.
