Miles on Monday: Thirty years of Tutu,
Don Cheadle profiled, and more

This week in Miles Davis news:

* Citing his work on Miles Ahead, the feature film about Davis that will be released in April, Variety magazine last year named Don Cheadle one of 10 "directors to watch" in 2016, and now has followed up with a profile of Cheadle.

* Meanwhile, the imminent screening of Miles Ahead this month at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT prompted some personal reflections on Davis from a columnist for Park City's local paper, the Park Record.

* In two separate posts, Jazz Profiles' James Herrod republishes and comments on the liner notes of the reissued Davis album 'Round About Midnight Revisited and the box set The Complete Miles Davis and John Coltrane on Columbia, 1955-1961.

* This week in Miles Davis history: Thirty years ago this week on January 5, 1986, Davis went into the recording studio for the first session for what would become Tutu, the Marcus Miller-produced album (pictured) released in December of that year.
