Miles Davis reissues and tribute albums have been coming out so frequently these days that cynics might find any given disc redundant—or even interchangeable with any other. Ironically, trumpeter Mark Isham’s new CD, Miles Remembered: The Silent Way Project, was recorded live at Los Angeles’ Baked Potato in 1996, about two years ahead of the curve. Maybe it was delayed because of all that soundtrack work that Isham does in Hollywood. At any rate, his cinematic approach to music meshes well with Miles’ alluring late-’60s sound collages. Although Isham’s clarion tone and evasive way with a melody may sometimes sound too close to Miles for comfort, his performance tonight should prove to be quite engaging. Isham performs at 8 and 10 p.m. at Blues Alley, 1073 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Rear. $18. (202) 337-4141. (John Murph)
