GOJR 100

miles davis quintet miles smilesWith this album the second Miles Davis Quintet really began to hit their stride, delving deeper into the more adventurous, exploratory side of their signature sound. This is music that demands attention, never taking predictable paths or easy choices. It's a great triumph that shows adventurousness within the music that is warm and accessible.This is a classic Blue Note album, with Horace Silver the master at balancing the jumping rhythms and complex harmonies, providing a unique blend of earthiness and sophistication. Recorded at a time when Bossa nova was still popular, it added a degree of the exotic, mixed with rhythms and modes from overseas.
