One of Miles Davis' last albums – and a swirling batch of "color" tracks that's almost a blending of his Gil Evans work with the early electric years! The album's one long extended suite – and it's got a moody feel that's really great – a shifting, shimmering sound that takes us back to the Evans years – but also with some of the colder, more modern moments of the late 60s. The set was recorded in Denmark, and is written and produced by Palle Mikkelborg – and it features a host of players, both American and European, including John McLaughlin on guitar, Bo Steif on bass, Jesper Thilo on reeds, Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, and Thomas Clausen on keyboards. Miles' solos are the primary focus over the large group setting – and each of the individual movements is named after a color: "White", "Yellow", "Orange", "Red", "Green", "Blue", "Electric Red", "Indigo", and "Violet".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... CD

Live Evil
Columbia, 1972. Used 2CD
A beautiful live representation of the energy of the Bitches Brew years – one that has Miles Davis and the group really letting loose with free-flowing, modally-inspired lines – cooking up an incredible blend of acoustic and electric sounds at once! There's a bit of funk here, but not ... CD
