Miles Davis – The Complete On The Corner Sessions 1972-1975

With a huge cast of accompanists including John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Bernard Purdie, and many more, Davis definitively transcended the jazz template and fully embraced a new form that incorporated jazz, rock, funk, and the avant garde, but … Full Descriptionwas truly its own beast.

Eschewing harmonic/melodic development, these tracks are powered by shifts in dynamics and texture over percolating grooves, and would prove hugely influential to hip-hop, dub, electronica, and more, for decades to come. By including outtakes and full versions of edited tracks, this collection finally lets the layers of Miles and producer Teo Macero’s complex tapestry unfold with the proper breathing room, making it clear why what was initially one of Miles’ worst-selling albums would eventually be regarded as a high-water mark even he would never surpass.

In a sense, the 1972 release ON THE CORNER was the culmination of what Miles Davis had been working towards since 1969′s IN A SILENT WAY, where he began experimenting with a full-on electric ensemble and moving beyond straight-ahead jazz. THE COMPLETE ON THE CORNER SESSIONS, boasting six discs and a wealth of previously unheard music, shines a light on just how groundbreaking these sessions were.I suggest to buy a copy that contains 120-page full-color booklet with liner notes and essays as well as rare photographs and new illustrations.
