Miles Davis: Tutu (Warner Bros.)
Mark Rowland, Musician, December 1986
TUTU IS A pop album. Tutu is a jazz album. Wait, you're both right! Tutu seems unlikely to pry many new converts from either camp, however; today's popheads show small patience for modal incongruities, even those hitched to a sturdy backbeat, while dyed-in-the-tweed jazzbos still mourn the good, "old" Miles, like widows who light votive candles to glimpse reflections of their virtue.
