Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars Throughout most of the 60's Miles' career was mainly axec to waeds his quintet, which develop a wad of albums, most of them not having a link with this site and I must say most fairly boring (IMHO). As the 60's grew, counter-culture and the opening of of most music styles to electricity was happening (even Folk had done so, some calling Dylan of Judas), jazz was resisting the electric movement and the jazz purists were no less fervent acoustic people than the folk purists, being careful and even preventing their syle from digression. When the first electric notes did appear, it came from the man with the horn himself, so the acoustic Ayatollahs couldn't do much about it. Actually it wasn't Miles himself that went electric, but one of the man in his band, Herbie Hancock, but it was at Miles' wish, since it is the Black Magus himself that bought the electric piano and offered it to HH. HH himself wasn't exactly sure himself whether he really wanted to try it out (privately I'm sure he relished, but publically, would he not face the Judas threats), but a job in Miles' band was definitely To be truthful, Miles was not alone claiming the electric judas label as the much more Obscure Charles Lloyd was definitely making open calls to young white audiences himself.

So, FDK is the first Davis' 60's quintet album where electricity appears and it appears under the electric piano form played by both Herbie and Chick Corea (not together, but alternatively) AND the electric bass, played only by Ron Carter (present when HH was), but not Dave Holland (present when CC was there). Trusting the French to adopt this new direction much more than the Anglo-Saxon world, Miles named the full album with French names. This trust and his general love of France was quite evident from his collabs (with Louis Malle's Ascensceur Pour L'Echaffaud) , but the amount of time he spent in France and now his girlfriend, Mrs. Maubry. It was also a time where the quintet was nearing it end as there are two version on this album: HH,RC & CC,DH. FDK is also an exceptional album for the times as it clocks at one hour (at least in its Cd version)

Starting on the shorter but energetic Frelon Brun (Brown wasp/hornet), where the group is charged up and ready to roll, CC not being as prominent azs HH except in the short solo at the end of the track. HH makes his piano heard right from the start of the much slower Tout de Suite (right now) but we remain in standard jazz territory. Adventurously-speaking, the title track (with HH) runs away with the gold medal on the flipside, while Mlle Maubry (Miles' muse of the moment) remains all too standard with CC on keys.

In short, we can say the two whiter dudes do not dare the afventures as hard as the two darker dudes, but where still way to far away I from a genre meddling and well too entrenched in the straight jazz realm to be calling this albums "prog". It's just slightly electrified jazz. One of the more interesting albums from Davis' 60's quintet, but not essential in terms of the scope of thios site.

3 stars Merits and demerits of John Coltrane that had died in 1967 left the aftereffect in the world of interim Jazz. 1968 year when this album had been produced might have been chaotic time where John Coltrane did not exist exactly. Miles might have been a situation in the age when Rock had started receiving citizenship worldwide according to various forms in which it groped for a new creation from the band of five person organization that had been done till then. It was not a translation said that a new musician did not exist at all of course in the item of Jazz. However, Jazz was obviously chaotic before the door in the 70's was opened. It is also true for people to avoid the item of Jazz and to have seen the future in the world of Rock.

Miles tried contact with a new musician to overturn the concept till then 1968. And, they started finding means of escape by boldly introducing electronic musical instruments in the age. Herbie Hancock resigns exactly from the combo for a further creation. And, Tony Williams started just moving the place of the activity to "Lifetime". It might have been a moment when each musician had started deriving exactly aiming at the age around Miles.

The album by which Miles had worked in the flow was "Miles In The Sky". Music on which five person gold till then worked faces the revolution with this album. Miles that took electronic musical instruments might already have voluntarily complicated the shape of the mode jazz. However, the fan of the fact where the age is always caught is good and it knows the sensibility of Miles. And, the listener might have had hope and some uneasy elements at the same time for the future of Jazz. However, the music that derives from "Miles In The Sky" becomes shape that this album keeps certain and it connects with "In A Silent Way". It will be able to be said that this fact was a major break for Miles. The keyboard of Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea develops the mutually original world. After all, Ron Carter that dislikes performing Electric Bass also tries E-Bass according to Miles. And, Dave Holland takes charge of acoustic Bass by the tune. Fact to which five person gold till then began to collapse little by little. And, this time might be really time when the whole of the kingdom of music faced the revolution and the tohubohu , considering the fact where this album arose from the session. The flow of the tune is feeling that follows and develops the former work. However, it is not a translation to which it experiments on everything with electronic musical instruments. This is a footprint where the directionality of Miles was shown to the end. It is a result of already respectfully in Jimi and JB and materializing the electric wave that only Miles feels. Jimi and JB to which Miles had paid attention with Rock cut it into the kingdom of music in another route in the age, and as for Miles, the antenna was put, they were made to come round, and the wave of the counterplan might have given Miles the time of the revolution at that time. Wayne Shorter also obviously read the revolution. Its deriving to Weather Report, RTF, Mahavishnu, and Lifetime in the 70's came at once. And, king Miles might already have slipped out the item of Jazz.

Review by The Quiet One
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Who's that on the cover? The one and only Mademoiselle Mabry!

Filles de Kilimanjaro sets the definition of a 'transitional album'. From this album, there's an after and before. While Davis first introduced the Rhodes and an electric guitar one year before in Miles in the Sky to his music, the compositions on that were still pretty much standard jazz, and when I say 'standard' I mean your standard Davis post-bop with his famous Quintet consisting of Tony Williams, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, so it's top-notch 'standard' jazz.

In Filles there's a split, with the exclusion of Hancock and Carter for the first time in 4 years, in the first and last tune, replaced by future "lasting" members, Chick Corea and Dave Holland. However, these two tunes aren't so interesting taking in consideration the pieces where Hancock participates. The opener, 'Frelon Brun', is an energetic jazz track featuring solos from Miles, Wayne and Chick, though the highlight for me is Tony Williams' quite fierceful fills, not your average jazz drummer, that you should already know. 'Mademoiselle Mabry', on the other hand, is a very gentle tune being mainly an extension and expansion of Hendrix's 'The Wind Cries Mary', it's a nice mix of blues and jazz.

Now to the more interesting pieces, these are 'Tout de Suite' and the title track. While 'Tout de Suite' introduces itself like another tranquil and night-mood jazz tune with relaxing electric keyboards and soft drumming, its middle section, however, lasting over 8 minutes, is like a loose sort-of jam very similar to 'Shhh/Peaceful' from In a Silent Way with Hancock playing those same fast twists in the keys while Tony and Ron keep a steady rhythm.

The title track also expands further the jazz realms as it would later be known in Bitches Brew. It has a repetitive, though engaging rhythm done by Carter's bass and Williams's drums, and on top of that there's Wayne, Herbie and Miles sharing notes and dueling pacifically. A proto-typical Miles composition of his 'electric/fusion' period.

So yes, Filles de Killimanjaro and Miles in the Sky are the albums where Miles would build on top of in the next couple of years. Though not as chilling as 'In a Silent Way' or as rocking as 'A Tribute to Jack Johnson', both Filles and Miles in the Sky are excellent records of jazz delving into a primitive style of fusion.

4 stars: excellent album which allows you to distinguish the keyboardist that are playing in 'In a Silent Way', since in that album both Corea and Hancock, plus Zawinul, are playing together unlike in Filles de Kilimanjaro which their keyboards are not mixed. Highly recommended if you're a fan of a more energetic and loosier jazz, and of course this is essential to understand how Miles' creativeness and compositional skills went progressing, as well as influences.
