I'm a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and an avid music fan. I've recently begun my first job and I'm excited for the future. If you like music as much as I do, be sure to check out my 'Now Playing' tag.
This was my second album of Miles’ fusion stuff, and it’s pretty different from Bitches’ Brew. Where BB is chaotic and intense, In A Silent Way is calm and soothing. It still has an absolute all-star cast of musicians, though, including Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, AND Joe Zawinul on keys, not to mention John McLaughlin and Dave Holland. It’s only two very long tracks, but it makes sense for this album. One description I read of it described it as proto-ambient, and there are definitely parts of it that give off an ambient vibe. Other times it’s quietly funky.
