5 stars Came back to this after the Mahavishnu Orchestra expierence

As previously stated, this was the beginning, but as with a lot of new beginnings, it needed to ramp up. This is very accessable to those who may not be tolerable to the furious tempo of some of the later Jazz/Fusion efforts. As the title suggests, In a Silent Way is how the sound is and feels throughout.

Miles just really knows when to pipe in with his trumpet via the majority of the album. And it is "In a Silent Way" that he comes in and out. Even though this is John McLaughlin's first venture with Miles, his guitar work is so sutle that you would never suspect what would come after this. However, this is truely the beginning of the Jazz/Fusion/Rock era.

It is a 4 and a half star effort which I will round up to 5 since this started a whole new world Jazz called Fusion.
