Good stuff in a prog way made from In A Silent Way until he took the big break and went totally crazy according to his autobiography.  It's a really good read if you haven't yet already.

In A Silent Way is totally influential to musicans around the globe. My favorite though is Bitches Brew. A Tribute To Jack Johnson runs a close race for me. I have felt in the past that Sketches Of Spain touches progressive territory in a quite different way. The guy was a genius and he opened paths NOT only for the great jazz/fusion musicans who were signed to record labels and had bands of their own but, thousands of unknown musicans that travelled the road in America. His influence on European musicians was very important as well. I am lucky Miles was born.

Perhaps not the main intent of the thread but...
 
I was told his most prog album (I'm assuming in a sense to get him added to this site...meaning not progressive jazz) was Dark Magus. I bought it...and damn is it jazz. So, not to hijack the thread, but was this a poor album to recommend?

Dark Magus as jazz? More like relentlessly heavy funk.

Live Miles in the mid-70s is like a denser version of Wetton-era King Crimson. Pete Cosey, Reggie Lucas and Dominique Gaumont are six-string noise terrorists.The intensity these guys work up (and sustain) is unbelievable.

Absolutely one hundred percent correct! A total often misunderstood and thrown by the wayside point of reference. This is also a very true detailed aspect in history that is not realized by all and very sad to not be. I am totally impressed with your observation because it spells out honesty for musicans and hard-core fans.Clap

Exactly, Get Up With It and Big Fun are no doubt his proggiest albums. Bitches Brew would fall under the category too I suppose.

Agharta and Pangaea are his progest albums in my opinion.

I'm glad someone mentioned "He loved Him Madly". What a classic proto ambient piece of music, that even Miles Davis fans dismiss.

Manfred Eicher sent Mils Davis the letter in the past. It was a request said that it would want you to record Solo Album and to announce with ECM.

It is said that Miles Davis was broken without reading the letter and thrown away. It was made remarks that working with the person who did not know was unpleasant.

It will have been an action of which the character of Miles Davis had indeed gone out ahead.

If Miles Davis announced Solo Album, it might be very interesting.

re your above remark about Dark Magus: thats weird because a lot of the beats and approach on this album are pure proto-punk rock, albeit the solos on top are free jazz and RnB jazz. The rest of the album is a mix of free funk jazz, and avant-garde.

I don't know about "proggiest", but my favorite electric Miles records are:
Agharta
Pangea
Dark Magus
Get up with It
Big Fun
the new complete On the Corner boxset
