+1"In A Silent Way" is where Miles introduced the US to John McLaughlin after he stole him from Tony Williams.
I would say that this release is an acquired taste but lauded by Miles lovers.
John is also on Bitch's Brew, Jack Johnson and On The Corner.
There are Miles releases with John Scofield, Robben Ford and Mike Stern as well. I'm just too lazy to look up the titles.
Be warned, all this electric rock Miles is a lot different than "Kind Of Blue".
If you like "Kind Of Blue" you may want to try "Birth Of The Cool" before getting into the rock stuff.
My favorite Miles are the releases with the quintet (no gtr) = Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter and Ron Carter. This takes a little getting used to but it is some of the most interesting music ever recorded IMO.
Yeah, Stern sounds so great - Strat, MXR stereo chorus, couple of Acoustic amps (MXR distorion pedal?).We Want Miles. Live disc with Mike Stern tearing it up. A classic! Jean Pierre is probably the most famous track/solo on it.
A while back I saw some guys talking about this on TGP (maybe you) but haven't gotten it yet. It's on my wishlist. Thx.+1
Have you heard/seen the Miles Davis Quintet Live in Europe box set? It's just outright amazing. They're at the height of their powers on that. Besides the 3 CDs there's a DVD of 2 shows filmed in black and white. I think it's about the coolest thing I've ever seen. For me, this is/was the high water mark for jazz, IMHO. I've been listening to Bitches Brew and Filles de Kilimanjaro more lately, though.
This is by far my favorite electric Miles stuff. This band was taking serious chances on stage every night and daring people to follow. Check out these clips with Pete Cosey getting seriously out there on a 12 string Vox:Pete Cosey's acid flashback guitar with Reggie Lucas literally endless rhythm chops on the entirety of "Pangaea". It's a 2 CD set and there are two 40 minute plus jams on them. From a live concert recording from 1975 just before he "retired". Earlier the same day another two CD set was recorded with the same band "Agharta". Birth of the Cool this is not, it's psychedelic rock jamming that I've never heard the like of again.
Watch out though - I had one guy go "that's enough Miles Davis for me, forever" after hearing it.
