4 stars My first introduction to Miled Davis's (or 'es?) music, as long as intro to classic prog jazz in album form (not just songs). And I came here, as to every new genre and thinks. Think about, how to approach it. From what I saw, MD is skill jazzman, one of the best in this genre. Respected by many, spawned a lot of albums, more than most of bands here. But how about what I actually hear ? That's difficult. I'm not skilled and used to listen jazz. I don't know what to look and hear for, how to take these traits typical for jazz. So I can't tell if it's good JAZZ album, I can just tell if it's good. About what I hear, no what I can compare (not much).

So. Album is almost without vocals. However, there will be voice in the last track, so don't worry. And quite appropriate one to be honest. But that's not the main thing. So far, I can tell that I like this. Not masterpiece for me, but maybe I just can't appreciate it. Yet. Time will tell, so take this review as that I have good feeling about it. It has after all nice atmosphere, I imagine myself, sitting near window, listening to rain, falling down from skies. Melancholy feeling is strong here. And he has Herbie inside (group)

4(+), well, there's nothing I hate, but I have strange feeling from this. It leaves me pleased, but puzzled. But that's probably normal in jazz music. Thinking without words.

4 stars Third Miles Davis' new Quintet album is a bit different from excellent second one. If even more off the his hard-bop roots, album contains relaxed but cool music. There is difficult to find such emotional musicianship as on previous work.

Miles continues his experimentation, sound is much more complex there. And even being quite mid-tempo, album takes you outside of music played. Not energetic, but more expert musicianship. The listener feels as being outside of glass room, where music is constructed.

Many can be attracted by musical level, but still feel this glass wall between listener and music. It reminds me a new spiral of cool jazz atmosphere.

Anyway, strong post-bop album, just a little less great of it's predecessor.
