Bold stuff here: Robert Glasper reworks slices of sound from the mighty back catalogue of Miles Davis into R&B-inclined new pieces. Everything’s Beautiful also includes soulful vocals from heavy-hitters like Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder(!), all paying their respects to Miles while creating something wholly new.

5/10 Jack Customer review, 1st June 2016
I'm a reasonably big fan of Miles Davis and had high hopes for this release. However, the result is very underwhelming. Robert Glasper has had access to some of the most ground-breaking, superb music of all time and largely manages to turn it into slick, generic RnB drivel. The first track is a cool intro and "I'm Leaving You" is head and shoulders above the rest of the album but as a whole this is an opportunity badly missed in my opinion.
As just pure entertainment, this is not bad but I still do not understand how the name of Miles Davis appeared in all of this.
