Miles Davis, Robert Glasper feat. Erykah Badu: Maiysha (So Long)
on 24 June 2016
Robert Glasper—longtime crusader of liberating jazz and its players from rigid definitions—took samples from Miles Davis' archive (predominately his later electric years) and collaborated with the likes of Laura Mvula, Hiatus Kaiyote, Stevie Wonder and John Scofield to create the unique and contemporary tribute album Everything's Beautiful. Erykah Badu not only lends her voice in drum machine-led bossa nova song "Maiysha (So Long)" but also her director chops in its playful music video, in which she plays a diva songstress who goes by one of her monikers—Sarah Bellam.
