Album: Miles Davis, Bitches Brew Legacy Edition (Sony Legacy)

Miles had already broached the matter on In A Silent Way, but this was a far more unruly beast, with John McLaughlin's steely guitar lines cutting across the miasmic electric piano lines of Joe Zawinul and Chick Corea, and Miles's trumpet sharing stagefront duties with the sax of wingman Wayne Shorter, the whole thing driven by a massive drum including Jack DeJohnette and Billy Cobham.

Although, at this remove, when "jazz-rock" has become commonplace, it's the bass clarinet of Bennie Maupin which brings an unexpected vitality. This 4CD edition includes additional outtakes, singles, and live sets.
