Jack Johnson, also known as A Tribute to Jack Johnson, is a soundtrack recorded by Miles Davis. The album was the second film score Davis had composed, after Ascenseur pour l’échafaud in 1957.
Davis, who wanted to put together what he called “the greatest rock and roll band you have ever heard,” recorded with a line-up featuring guitarists John McLaughlin and Sonny Sharrock, keyboardists Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, clarinetist Bennie Maupin, and drummers Jack DeJohnette and Billy Cobham.
Original Label. The outer jacket is held together by tape, but the actual record is in excellent shape. LP Columbia KC 30455 1971 ****
