Miles Davis: In A Silent Way (CD: Columbia)Miles Davis: In A Silent Way (CD: Columbia)
An important pivotal album, which heralds Davis' abandonment of popular song structure and bop-derived style, in favour of increasing interest in soul and electronic rock music. Repetitive rhythm pulses combine with floating melodic textures---sustained "grooves"---to produce a dream-like music of sequence and variation. Personnel includes three electric keyboards---Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul---plus Wayne Shorter (soprano-sax), John McLaughlin (guitar), Dave Holland (bass) and Tony Williams (drums). For the time (1969), a sound new and fresh to jazz---and fully representative of Davis' continuously innovative changes. Recommended. (Andrew Clark, Editor, Riffs & Choruses: A New Jazz Anthology. Continuum Publishing.)

Miles Davis: Bitches Brew 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition (CD: Columbia, 3 CDs, DVD & 2 Vinyl LPs)
Recorded at the end of a tumultuous decade (August 1969), Bitches Brew reflected the chaos and beauty of a society stretched and stressed to its breaking point. This genre-bending, barrier-smashing double LP of boldly new music with dense textures and lengthy performances broke every rule of commerciality.

This 40th Anniversary Edition is a tribute to both the man who changed the course of jazz (“four or five times,” as he himself once quipped), and the album that virtually single-handedly brought jazz into the commercial rock era, becoming no.94 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.

Originally released in April 1970, Bitches Brew was informed by the music that Miles heard being produced in the era by Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone, James Brown, Santana and Marvin Gaye, as well as the Beatles’ editing pyrotechnics.

The original double-LP’s six tracks –“Bitches Brew,” “John McLaughlin,” “Sanctuary,” “Miles Runs the VooDoo Down”, “Pharaoh’s Dance,” and “Spanish Key” – as formulated in the studio by Miles and his long-time producer Teo Macero, presented a seismic breakthrough in jazz/rock/funk/R&B. Session personnel included Miles on trumpet, Wayne Shorter (soprano saxophone), Bennie Maupin (bass clarinet), Joe Zawinul (electric piano), Chick Corea (electric piano), John McLaughlin (guitar), Dave Holland (acoustic bass), Harvey Brooks (electric bass), Lenny White (drums), Jack DeJohnette (drums), Don Alias (congas), and Jumma Santos (aka Jim Riley - shaker). This Anniversary Edition presents the music recorded at the principal Bitches Brew August 1969 recording sessions as well as live performances of some of the same music recorded later, showing further development of the material in the hands of master improvisers.

The super deluxe box package comprises two CDs with original 94-plus minutes of music plus six bonus tracks; a third CD of a previously unissued performance at Tanglewood, August 1970, with Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette, Airto Moreira and Gary Bartz; DVD of a previously unissued performance in Copenhagen, November 1969, with Wayne Shorter, Corea, Holland and DeJohnette; Audiophile 180-gram vinyl double-LP gatefold replication of original album; 52-page colour 12x12 book with 5,000-word essay by journalist-author-producer-musician Greg Tate; Producers’ notes by Michael Cuscuna and Richard Seidel (the box’s Co-Producers); and Lenny White interview by author Ashley Kahn. The book features Mati Klarwein’s painting Zonked (a psychedelic portrait of Miles Davis’ wife, Betty, which also encodes a profile of Miles) on its cover, plus dozens of rare, unpublished photographs and record label memos; Memorabilia envelope containing a reproduction of the Davis Rolling Stone cover story from December 1969, previously unseen correspondence from Teo Macero’s archives, reproductions of three Fillmore West concert tickets from April 1970, high quality photograph prints, and a foldout poster of Miles Davis.

Recorded six months after the transitional "In a Silent Way," "Bitches Brew" (1969) is the definitive Davis jazz rock fusion album, a style-setter for the 1970s, signalling an abrupt change in the direction of jazz. A superb illustration of Davis' later instrumental process, which employs electric keyboards and multiple percussion in long pieces; full of rhythmic energy, it has the spontaneity and variety of a large ensemble (eleven musicians, including Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, and John McLaughlin). Davis orchestrates it all with fire and dark, dynamic passion. Essential for any serious collection. (Andrew Clark, Editor, Riffs & Choruses: A New Jazz Anthology. Continuum Publishing.)
