Featuring nine tracks, eight originals and one cover, the album is full of space and texture, mashed up funk, jazz, rock and virtuoso musicianship. A bonus DVD is also included that features a making-of featurette, two in-the-studio featurettesand the official "Octopus-e" music video.
In title and spirit, the album tips its hat to MiLes Davis' classic 1982 live instrumental LP We Want Miles, its influence is one of many echoing through RCFP'sre-imagination of jazz-funk-the album opener, "Octopus-e," boasts a sinewy funk groove that suggests a meeting between Jeff Beck and the Average White Band. "Tal did a great job making sure the album didn't become over indulgent," says Bonamassa. "The challenge was to keep it fresh without our influences overwhelming the music-to keep the band vibe without it becoming too many ideas from too many people. It was important to commit to the moment and keep it fresh, and fun."
