Legacy Recordings Launches Miles Davis “Fan Project”

New compilation's tracks to be voted on by online fans

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, has launched “The Miles Davis Fan Project,” an online initiative designed to introduce Davis’ music to a digital audience via Facebook (Miles Davis) and Davis’ official website.

Throughout the month of August, 40 classic Miles Davis tracks-representing multiple aspects and phases of the Davis canon from the post-bop cool of Kind of Blue through the fusion of Bitches Brew to the meditative In a Silent Way– are being featured on Facebook via social sound sharing platform SoundCloud. The tracks feature an active “Like” button which prompts fans to vote. The 10 recordings accruing the most “Likes” from fans online will be assembled for Blue Flame, a fan-christened digital-only album to be released on September 26.
