    In October of 1985 Miles Davis began recording the album 'Rubberband' in Los Angeles at Ameraycan Studios with producers Randy Hall and Zane Giles. The musical direction Davis was taking during the sessions marked a radical departure, with the inclusion of funk and soul grooves; with plans to feature guest vocalists Al Jarreau and Chaka Khan. Eventually,...

    Recorded live at Carnegie Hall, NYC, on a cold March night in 1974, this is where Miles became straight-up sinister. 
    Miles performs with Chick Corea on electric piano, Dave Holland on acoustic bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums; musicians who  went on to become leaders of the fusion movement. (Wayne Shorter unfortunately missed this date because he was stuck in traffic.) The A1 track "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down" is the first professionally live recorded ...
    The first of two albums taken from the same concert in 1975, the other being 'Pangaea.' They represent a full stop at the end of Miles'70s experiments before his five year 'retirement.' It had been arguably Miles' most creative phase of his career, and here, predictably, things are still changing and developing.

    There's a good reason that this is the world's most loved jazz album - because it really is an amazingly beautiful record and a perfect exemplar of its genre! This truly is the jazz record that everyone should own! Miles Davis produced a lot of records in his career that are now considered classic albums, but none more so than this - this is both...
    Classic super-funky early seventies jazz fusion album from Miles Davis! The Bitches Brew album is famous for being Miles Davis' radical departure from his 1960s style post-bop into the realms of jazz-funk-rock fusion, but its the On the Corner album that far better exemplifies the direction he was taking towards rhythmic, layered, funky longform...
    Miles Davs+ Jackie McClean, Jimmy Heath, Art Blakey, Horace Silver + more. Blue Note, 1955
    Just like it says on the tin.
    The first steps in Miles electric phase - fantastic.
    Miles, George Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Victor Feldman, Ron Carter, Tony WIlliams. Produced by Teo Macero. Miles is in the ZONE! Modal grooviness. Definitely one of the best of his middle phase before he moved into electric fusion/rock.
    This live album from 1982 puts him together with a young Marcus Miller. It is as good as it gets.
    Back in 1949/50, Miles Davis and eight friends recorded 3 sessions. The results were released as singles, then collected together and released in 1957 as `Birth Of The Cool' under the name of Miles Davis. But the other names in the group should not be overlooked, they read like a who's who of 50's and 60's cool and freeform jazz, with people like Gerry...

    This is the album where arguably jazz's greatest partnership began, that of Miles Davis and John Coltrane. The first great Miles Quintet (rounded out by Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones) made this solid session on November 16, 1955.
    Absolute classic album from Miles Davis' 'second classic quintet' with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams...superb! By 1967 Miles Davis and his group were at the height of their creative powers: the group had been together for several years at this point, just before the introduction of electronic elements, and were pushing...

    Miles began his 30 year run at Columbia records with this album, a bop masterpiece. The individual strengths of each player that made this group so good are showcased on this recording. The beautiful tone of Miles's trumpet being played through a harmon mute directly into the microphone, inventive solos from John Coltrane, steady rhythm work from...
    This excellent album marks the transition point between Miles Davis' mid-sixties acoustic modal work with his second classic quintet and his early seventies electric fusion recordings. This is like a prelude to the excellent "In a Silent Way" album! Recommended!

    Essential classic jazz fusion album! This seminal album set the trend for all those wigged-out, heavy, psychedelic, free-form jazz rock fusion albums from the early seventies! This is the album that brought the Woodstock generation to jazz and forever changed the course the music would take - it features Miles putting his trumpet through a Wah-Wah...

    Brilliant modal jazz album from the vintage year of 1967! 1967 saw Miles Davis' 'second' classic quintet of Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams, and Ron Carter record the music for the albums Nefertiti, Water Babies and Sorceror - all essential modal jazz albums recorded by what was essentially a tight and long-standing super-group of some...
    Classic modal jazz album and the first studio recording by the group that has justifiably come to be known as the 'second' of Miles Davis' two 'classic' quintets! Expansive, deep, complex and beautiful music from a group of improvisers that were totally attuned to each other. Recommended!
