Thats because Miless nephew, Vince Wilburn Jr., is producing a new album called Evolution of the Groove that puts a contemporary spin on his uncles musical masterpieces.
Says Wilburn: Music evolves, but Im not trying to be Miles. Im just reliving his music, which is so sacred and touching to my heart.
Growing up with Miles, Wilburn remember the musician always trying new chords and experimenting with melodies.
As Wilburn puts it, Miles would always say, Lets go! Play this! Try this! He was always looking for the next groove.
And some of todays hottest cats still dig Miles milestone music.
In fact, Wilburn says Sting, Keith Richards, and Darryl Jones all trumpet Miles greatness.
This Saturday, Wilburn and family will pay tribute to Miles at Hollywoods RockWalk by presenting flowers to his bronze bust.
