fusion-era Miles Davis

Post by Eclipse »

Anyone into Miles' fusion albums?
For Floyd fans, Get Up With It and In A Silent Way are must-listen albums!
Be sure to check Big Fun, On the Corner and Jack Johnson too.
And the acclaimed and awesome Bitches Brew is also from this era.
Also, don't forget the live albums from this period.
It's a whole universe of amazing music!

I love Miles Davis, from pretty much any period, but yes, especially the fusion era. My favourite is probably Get Up With It. In Concert (1973), Agharta (1975) and Pangaea (1976) are some of my favourite of his live albums. Truly groundbreaking and brilliant stuff!

Where to begin?
Is In A Silent Way better than Bitches Brew?

I recommed In a Silent Way to begin exploring his fusion era.
I love both, but IAW is more accessible to begin. It is very atmospheric and quite Floydian too!
BB is more visceral, wild, and difficult to get into.
Both are masterpieces in their own ways, though.
Another cool starting point would be Jack Johnson.
