Miles Davis: Stuff
Miles Davis (trumpet)
Miles in the Sky (Columbia 9628)
Composed by Miles Davis.
Recorded: Columbia Studio B, NYC, May 17, 1968
Rating: 100/100 (learn more)
(Editor's note: Recorded after the all-acoustic Nefertiti, Miles in the Sky was his first record that to experiment with combinations of acoustic and electric instruments. While other tracks on this record (“Paraphernalia”) feature electric guitar, “Stuff” features both electric bass and piano from Carter and Hancock. E.N.)
As much as I love In A Silent Way, this album pointed my way towards the future of music. Thank you Tony Williams and Ron Carter! How can something be so loose and yet so funky?
