Ah how I love this album.
Anyone else totally in awe of it?
even so, all my favourite Miles stuff is the bizarre 1970s work though.
"Rated X" is brilliant.
I love Miles Davis electric stuff, but have had my fingers burned a few times venturing into other fusion.
If you want more Miles, I'd recommend any of his 70s stuff, but my favourites are probably Jack Johnson and Dark Magus.
Beyond that: Try the first Tony Williams Lifetime (Emergency), or the first 2 McLaughlin (Extrapolation, Devotion)
Also great is Wayne Shorter's Supernova, recorded around the same time as BB with many of the same people (plus Sonny Sharrock). A bit more free-jazz, but still great. And in a similar vein, Larry Young's Lawrence of Newark is fantastic.
Finally, if you can track down a copy of the Jazz Satellites compilation (compiled by Kevin Martin), that has loads of great (and frequently obscure) jazz / electronic hybrids.
Hope that's of some help.
it was the only thing that could help me concentrate on my a level coursework/revision...and now i use it at uni!
prefer On The Corner, which is in the same vein, but slightly more pared down and focused.
reply to Bitches Brew threads by talking about the Inspiral Carpets. It's a strain not to, let me tell you.
