It's probably about time that i dig deeper into Miles Davis discography. I'll start with his electric period.

My favorite albums from the ones i have is:
  1. Bitches Brew
  2. A Tribute to Jack Johnson
  3. Filles de Kilimanjaro
  4. In a Silent Way
  5. Miles in the Sky

Now VOTE!

I'm not getting a feeling of poll deja vu with this one.  So there are several I haven't heard yet, but many I have.  Very hard to pick  favorite.  In A Silent Way perhaps.  Electric without being noisy.

Get Up With It.

You should include the overlooked Water Babies. Recorded 67-68, released in 76. Essential early fusion.

A Tribute To JJ.
 
Dark Magus and At Filmore are close behind.

In a Silent Way always seemed, to me, to be the most cohesive of his electric albums, and it is the album that got me into long form fusion and nu-jazz. So, that's where my vote goes.

A Tribute to Jack Johnson is better than Bitches Brew IMHO

In almost every Davis topic I've cited Get Up With It as my favourite electric era Davis album, but of late I've been more into Big Fun, so Big Fun gets my vote.  I know and like all of them, though up to Dark Magus (don't know the later ones).

Normally Id probably go with Bitches Brew, but Ive been looking through my old records lately, because I recently found a "Krautrock" album, which had been stocked away for years without me listening to it. Well I recently found Miles live at the Fillmore, and that record is entirely responsible for getting me into fusion in the first place. I remember listening to it in some music shop years ago. The listening "station" looked like a palm tree with 4 branches each providing different music to the customers. I stood between 2 girls who obviously were listening to some pretty funky stuff, because they were both dancing. Then my music started - and I immediately broke out laughing! Id never heard anything remotely like it before(I was 16). Then those funky rhythms started to work and everything started making sense - in a funky jungle wilderness kind of way, and I started dancing too. I was this close to having scored 2 chicks, had it not been for them cracking completely up, when they removed their headphones and suddenly heard what was playing from mineLOL
Still one of my fave Miles albums, so a sentimental vote from me this time.

In A Silent Way has always captivated me more than any other of Miles' electric albums, so I'm voting for that one.  I'm also pretty fond of Bitches Brew, Jack Johnson, and Get Up With It. However, I like almost everything that Miles has ever composed, so it's usually hard to pick a solid first choice in a poll like this. Smile

Bitches Brew is still my fav. This music always makes me think of a Picasso painting.

I've always been partial to the live/studio mix of Live-Evil. Love McGlaughlin's live tracks.

Wow I'd completely forgotten about this poll. I evidently posted here in 2011...?

Anyway if I could vote again, I'd give some love to Big Fun. Love that Indian vibe it's got going for it. Without a doubt the most psychedelic album Miles ever did.

As much as I want to like Bitches Brew, it's good in parts but always comes down to noodling around for a long time. I prefer In A Silent Way.
