Miles Davis was going through exciting musical changes in 1968, listening and playing things which were leading him into the future, a new electric sound for In a Silent Way. His music and lifestyle were being influenced by a wave of new sounds and ideas, and he was responding deeply to the music of James Brown, Sly Stone, and Jimi Hendrix. Having already pushed acoustic jazz to the limits with his mid-Sixties quintet, Miles altered the new sounds around him, creating a work that still stands up today. It couldn't be more different to the following Bitches Brew, with a supremely relaxed vibe to showcase his new "plugged in" sound.
Egos give way to unity in this album. In a Silent Way represents one of the most important self-declarations of artistic independence to ever go down in jazz history. This is not "jazz" aimed at its traditional audience, but rather a new thing directed at the counter-culture that was busy turning on, tuning in, and dropping out around the time of its release (the summer of '69 was just around the corner). The album is psychedelic, spiritual, peaceful, funky, and complex. It delivers a hypnotic vibe for those intent on chilling with soothing sounds in the background. This is music to experience rather than listen to, so get experienced!
Miles Davis was an innovator from the moment he first picked up the trumpet. In a Silent Way was one of his most mysterious and elusive efforts. Japanese pressing, imported.
