miles davis ist unbestritten einer der einflussreichsten größen des jazz des zwanzigsten jahrhunderts. der vor allen durch seine musikalische offenheit ohne genre-scheuklappen in seiner über 50-jährigen karriere immer für innovationen des genres stand. miles hatte zu jeder zeit immer wieder die jüngere generation der musiker mit einbezogen. er hat gierig auch deren wissen. können und musikverständnis aufgesaugt und dabei für sich viel neues entdeckt. was dann scheinbar spielerisch mit seiner schon fast unerreichbaren kunst des trompetenspiels in seinen kompositionen eindrucksvoll belegt wurde.
für »amandla« übernahm miles davis 1989 ein letztes mal die rolle des bandleaders. die er auf den vorgänger-alben (»tutu« und »siesta«) größtenteils an den bassisten marcus miller abgetreten hatte. hier ist die elite von miles damaliger liveband zu hören. d. h. neben marcus miller (als multi-instrumentalist) z. b. kenny garrett (alt-saxofon). paulinho da costa (percussioni). foley (gitarre) oder omar hakim (drums).
