I've come to a new appreciation for Miles' late 60's/early 70's electric music, especially "In A Silent Way" and "The Complete Bitches Brew Sessions" , it's amazing how much this stuff opens like aflower and reveals more and more details every time you listen to it.

What say y'all?

People are puzzled why I don't dig the Stones, well, I listened to the Stones, I tried, and I tried, and I tried, and--I Can't Get No Satisfaction!

I'd like to recommend an album of a similar period. Kind of Blue, released in 59, with Johnny coltrane on Sax is obviously one of Miles' greatest recording. there are many an excellent jazz tune on there, such as Flamenco Sketches, So What, and All blues(an interesting Jazz tune done in 6/8)

I like Miles' collaboration with Toto  on a song that appears on 'Fahrenheit'.

What about Tony Williams Lifetime, both versions with McLaughlin and then Allan Holdsworth. They took the ball from Miles and ran with it. You'd probably put the Softs in with those on the cutting edge.

Extrapolation by John McLaughlin is also a jazz masterpiece.

You can also try Big Fun and Jack Johnson from that early 70s Miles Era.
