EDITORS’ NOTES

Miles Davis took a turn away from hard bop with Bitches Brew, and its mysterious fusion vibes still reverberate throughout jazz music. Psychedelic guitar lines cavort with funky percussion on “Pharaoh’s Dance,” while the title track manifests the album’s surreal atmospheres with stark trumpet blasts, bobbing bass, and wild bursts of percussion. And despite its abrasiveness, a chilled-out character emerges on opus “Miles Runs the Voodoo Down.” Arguably Davis’ most intense work, this masterpiece firmly cements his name in the jazz-rock pantheon.
