Let's hear it for a real soul groovin' legend of music on this, the year of its 56th birthday
(well, him and Lennon)
Which makes it like the 4th best album ever tbh.
Not challenging, just curious.
But I guess I'm just really into that Era
but with added in a silent way.
It's the best era.
The first track on get up with it is ace.
Must take a listen.
I went backwards from 'Bitches Brew' and fell in love with 'Sketches of Spain' and 'Porgy and Bess'. Also, Hancock's playing on 'Miles Smiles' is stunning.
They're slightly more Sixties groovy/trippy than the fifties records obviously, but there's some stone cold stunners on both.
