4 stars Almost classical Miles album, this one is great work from the time before jazz fusion was invented. Great mix of symphonic atmosphere (with minimalistic resources) and be-bop intelligent sound.

Soft mid-tempo or down-tempo compositions with very well balanced instruments, light and sunny music ( mostly because of many Spanish folk /flamenco elements). Sound is full of Davis trumpet solos, and you will listen all album as one bright colourful suite.

Whenever still nothing connected with later jazz fusion works, because of it's symphonic sound album could attract many symphonic prog lovers. For jazz fans it is very pleasant and almost classic work from be-bop and cool jazz period.

Very recommended for all lovers of great music from be-bop era as excellent work ( with symphonic orchestration) . Concerto De Aranjuez is all time classic piece.
