Miles. In a Silent Way.

Miles with Wayne Shorter (soprano sax not tenor), Tony Williams, Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, Dave Holland, etc... in his first fusion album. The idea that Miles should have stopped in his development at some point, and not gone there, here, is ridiculous. It's not facile, repetitive fusion of the Chuck Magione type. I don't think you can see it as a sell-out either.

Such a beautiful, dreamy CD. For a long time, I had this but not Bitches Brew on CD, so when I recently picked up Bitches Brew again, I was surprised that BB did not seem much wilder than this one. BB's much calmer than I remembered it being!

Or perhaps it was just that I got back to BB after listening to some live recordings from that era, which are really wild!
