Miles Davis | In A Silent Way

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. 

Quietly funky.


Check it out.
