Album Review

Davis, Miles – “Big Fun” – [Columbia Records (Jazz)]

Cousin Mary   4/20/2009   CD, Jazz

Reminiscent of ???Bitches Brew??? which was recorded just a few months before the earliest track on this 2-CD set, Miles Davis???s muted trumpet, electric piano, electric guitar and Indian instruments give us this trippy, dreamy music. Personnel changes quite a bit from track to track and includes Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, John McLaughlin, Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Larry Young and many others.

You could immediately guess the year(s) this was recorded, but it sounds fresh, not dated. Great stuff!
