3 stars It did not exactly know the power of Miles Davis that had rushed into in the 70's stayed. However, he needed taking a rest for about one and a half years from 1971 because he had had the problem of health. Time like it was required so that the reform with CBS that contracted have had to have by him and to undergo the operation on the gallbladder.

And, the album by which he had worked on production after the rest was "On The Corner". Miles at the time of "Agharta" and "Pangaea" worked on the work very aggressively and left "In A Silent Way" the masterpiece in the age of Electric Miles.

The album that had been exactly announced from "On The Corner" that had been announced in 1972 after about four months became this live album. As for the flow, a high performance of a similar quality to "Live Evil" is collected. Sax player's Carlos Garnett that participated in this album and Cedric Lawson etc. of the keyboard were musicians who had participated while slightly of this time.

The antenna that Miles had put always caught the age and always created the item of Jazz by dismantlement and restructuring. It is guessed that it is an important member who has them establish the route of the music of Miles at this time to guitar player's Reggie Lucas and Bass player's Michael Henderson, etc. as a musician of coming from from the Soul music. Perhaps, how to make the sound of the guitar like Jimi Hendrix that seems that it is an idea of Miles it indicates the success and the road of the extent expressed by performing Reggie.

The tune that had been announced so far was developed further and the style of Miles that pursued degree of freedom and the perfection further might have been established at this time. The tension invites the world and the listener from whom the transmitting forecast doesn't surely take side with the spectator. For one thing, the role of the charm of the performance that continues until later years as the leader of Miles is demonstrated. The sense of Miles that cued to the member with the organ and manipulated the flow of the tune freely gave birth to the element that always found the labyrinth one answer.

Often, Miles to which degree of freedom increased did a performance extremely open that did not use the mute. The wave motion vibrates to the member and the world of each musician's knowledge, root, and Miles alone that cannot be applied to the item coming in succession as usual Jazz/Fusion is invented. Therefore, it might be difficult to specify his Music's genre. However, the method of catching as the music of Miles Davis without putting the definition of his Music's genre might be correct.
