RIP James Mtume 

Source: DevDiscourse.

Mtume’s affiliation with Davis began with 1972’s funk-driven ‘On the Corner,’ and he also worked with jazz greats such as pianist McCoy Tyner, trumpeter Art Farmer, keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith Jr., saxophonists Gato Barbieri and Pharoah Sanders and even Duke Ellington. In his solo music, Mtume ran the gamut from disco to avant-garde jazz, as well as dramatic compositions for television (‘New York Undercover’) and film (‘Native Son’).
