4 stars The opinion and the research will have various parts when talking about the content of this album. As for the flow, if the age was considered when Jazz approached Rock and it united, I will have felt a different part at that time. Miles Davis that created music would be an interest and, of course, be proof to the act of doing to make the element received to the antenna that the part and oneself from whom limited had been calculated were putting an embodiment and the music that derived naturally.

Mode Jazz that oneself is taken the lead and advocated repeats dismantlement and restructuring with own hand. Help of the musicians who were necessary to actually create music of course might have been given, too. However, it was an act that became a nucleus the music along in the age that Miles Davis caught to the end and was done.

It announced in 1968 "Miles in the Sky". And, "In a Silent Way" announced in 1969 is [wa] [ndei] [su] and [**] as for order new for the music that oneself advocated. The opinion of the approval or disapproval is also true in recent rapid [no] possession. critics in the contrary ..the flow that revolutionized Miles Davis is natural..There was an opinion made for Miles Davis to have destroyed the item of Jazz completely, too. However, the creation of aimed Miles Davis would exactly be an act and be a creation of nature in the flow of various music that Jazz/Fusion faced in the 70's in the history and the 60's recently. It might not be able to be said indiscriminately whether the history of Jazz Rock and Fusion greatly faced the time of the revolution on the boundary of this album. However, the work in this age will be able surely to be enumerated as establishment of Jazz Rock/Fusion if the directionality of the aimed music of Miles Davis at that time is extracted and it says.

The creation of Miles Davis that attempted the differentiation with the musician who performed Jazz with the element of Funk might certainly have been different existence at that time. However, the instinct and order might have been included in the music character of man who had them listen in the first half from the latter half of the 60's to the 70's. In Jazz after John Coltrane departs this world in 1967, it might be also true that there was the future of Jazz that doesn't adhere the forecast. The revolution was rapidly accomplished as music since Coltrane in the future when Jazz had to face it. And, it would have been one purpose in the road for which Miles Davis had to head to take Rock, Funk, and various elements to Jazz that oneself had been advocating. Shape of Jazz since John Coltrane. And, the existence of Jimi Hendrix and Sly&The Family Stone might surely have stimulated the antenna of Miles Davis for Miles Davis. The music at which Miles Davis should aim has been decided. He by the attainment might have been reflecting the counterplan in this album since the latter half of the 60's and. And, a recent work's influencing music and having pulled it are also true.

It multiplied on August 19th - August 21st of 1969 and this album was recorded in the studio in New York. And, it is announced in April, 1970. It might have had the part where the method such as giving work to increase the organization of musical instruments and to distribute the channel of an individual performance for the recording was novel. And, the attempt of the performance that makes the musician who plays musical instruments of each charge overlap gives an anacatesthesia, a tension, and a chaotic impression to the entire flow at the same time as surely improving the album-quality.

The element with a complex flow in a chaotic sound of "Pharaoh's Dance" gives the whole of the album as an impression by this tune. Twining of the trumpet that does the mute surely visits the whereabouts of the performance. The rhythm creates an existing concept as standard Jazz and the space of one overturning is created. The flow that gives the gaga impression might be splendid.

The element of Jazz Rock of "Bitches Brew" might be certain. Twining of the guitar and the flow of the trumpet receive the top of the tune at once. The performance advances in union. It is a task accomplished by Miles Davis that involved all almost elements for music. The industry of Miles Davis that surely catches the musician whereabouts and adjusts it is certain. A flow not advanced is proof as simple Improvisation where order exists surely as a direction that should be aimed. Music might surely be directionality and be a result in the point that the piano and the guitar, etc. are raised degree of freedom and performed based on some order. Wayne Shorter is Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul as for this album though it resigns from the combo of Miles Davis at the end. And, the influence that this album exerts for the following Weather Report might be large. The flow of the performance that chaotically repeated order had a big influence on the item of Jazz.

"Spanish Key" might have shown shape as complete Jazz Rock. Part to raise perfection of this album. Especially, the part where the rhythm is detailed and the part of the guitar that puts out the element of Rock forward might be the points that should make a special mention. And, rhythmically of Rock in close relation to a chaotic flow. And, Sax of Wayne Shorter and the guitar of John McLaughlin. The flow surely became it.

"John McLaughlin" might be a tune for the guitar. This tune is a fraction that is shorter than other tunes. It is said that it is a tune that extracts a fragmentary element of this tune for the tune with the fraction that "Bitches Brew" is very long when the tune is collected to the album and is composed. Ad-Rib of an exactly hard guitar has gone out to previous. The sound of the piano and the Bass clarinet in close relation to the flow gives the extension of the tune.

"Miles Runs The Voodoo Down" starts by a heavy flow and a glossy trumpet. A consistent rhythm is assumed to be a subject and it has a steady flow. The flow from which the guitar has come to the front as an impression of the album might be appearance of proof to which Miles Davis started bringing the element of Rock in very. Soprano Sax that receives the instruction to Miles Davis gives the tune glittering.

"Sanctuary" is given the impression of a quiet melody and the tohubohu and starts. Twining of the melody and the wind instrument with a piano tension promotes the anacatesthesia and the tension further. The part where Jazz/Fusion is good has already been established by this tune. The piano might contribute considerably. And, the wind instrument receives the top. The tune regains the anacatesthesia and hurtles through space. And, the top is received again.

The combo of Miles Davis appoints Keith Jarrett and Steve Grossman in the latter half of 1970 after this album is announced. The performance has developed into the performance by Fillmore East. And, the creation of the music is shown more remarkably in the appearance of "The Isle of Wight Festival" on Sax player's Gary Bartz on August 29, 1970. There is an opinion made that this album is a work in the question for the item of Jazz, too. However, the album of Jazz/Fusion and the lever should have become one index. The album is at the position in which people's opinions have already been exceeded.
