Overview

Bitches Brew

Few recordings in any musical genre had both the immediate impact and far-reaching effects of Bitches Brew. With this sprawling masterwork, Miles Davis jump-started the fusion jazz era. Although he had begun using elements of R&B and rock on earlier recordings, Bitches Brewwas a radical departure even for Davis. By filling the studio with multiple sets of drummers, bassists, electric keyboardists, and horn players, and then letting them interact freely on sparse formal frameworks, Davis created a busy, thick-textured sound that moved to hypnotic herky-jerky -- or glacially slow -- funk rhythms. Throughout extended tracks, Davis and his handpicked crew -- including guitarist John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, and Joe Zawinul - - toss about musical phrases rather than fashion conventional rounds of solos. The expansive nature of the project set the tone for Davis's innovative recordings of the 1970s, while its liberating tone set other inquisitive jazz players off on their own musical quests. Where much of the fusion that followed has been swept into the dustbin of history, Bitches Brew still sounds as fresh as tomorrow.
