Heeding the artist's call to stay fresh creatively, trumpeter Miles Davis reinvented himself several times over the course of his career. The jazz counterpart of Pablo Picasso, Miles changed the face of music forever in 1970 when he released Bitches Brew, his most adventurous, most controversial and ironically one of his best-selling recordings. It scored him his first gold record and his second Grammy award. The double-LP proved to be the shot heard 'round the jazz world, a revolutionary and influential release that signaled the advent of fusion.

When Davis headed into the studio he was after something more radical and dramatic. He invited several important young musicians of the day, including bass clarinetist Bennie Maupin, guitarist John McLaughlin, keyboardists Joe Zawinul and Larry Young, electric bassist Harvey Brooks, drummer Lenny White and percussionists Don Alias and Jumma Santos. Over the course of three days in August 1969, the band laid down six long, dense tracks of innovative music bearing the influence of Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye and Karlheinz Stockhausen. These sessions were released as Bitches Brew.

The Penguin Guide to Jazz calls Bitches Brew "one of the most remarkable creative statements of the last 50 years, in any form."

Miles Davis - Electric 73 montreux part 3

miles still on the organ, rated x vibe, runs the voodoo down

Miles for the deepest music ever from Coltrane and Philly Jo in the 50s, Wayne, Herbie, and Tony in the 60s, and all of the insane 70s music that was 30 years ahead of its time...

this band line up is simply amazing. Thank god Miles went out and sought new talent.
I'm pretty sure that's Pete Cosey on guitar, getting to play over those very eerie bass riffs. this is one of my favorite Hendrix sounding Miles songs and this performance has some of the better sections I've ever heard. the opening bass line is outstanding

Miles Davis Bitches Brew

It's not the melody so much as the atmosphere that is similar.

Listen to the reverb, the "closed in" sound of everything. It's like it's all stuffed in a small room, and there's a controlled chaos throughout.

It's kind of unnerving if you fire it up and listen to it in the dark. It's very rich with "texture and mood"
