4 stars "Bitches Brew" that Miles Davis had announced was a work that exactly left a lot of discussions and merits and demerits for the world of Jazz. It was in the situation in which not only Jazz before and behind the period that time but also various music accomplished the revolution. The creation of Miles Davis has advanced ahead in the flow with an exactly original methodology. And, they might already have presented the aspect that changed from heterodoxy to the main current.

To call the miracle indeed, the creation of Miles Davis in the 70's has left a lot of suitable works and the performances. And, the power of the music of Miles began to overflow with the idea at beginning of event of the 70's. To go forward, music to which it tried and erred in the latter the 60's might have contained an enough creation and the idea. The explosion becomes musical at which he should exactly aim and is being offered to the listener.

"Bitches Brew" also has the opinion made to have destroyed the form of Jazz. However, the musician and the character related to the creation and the recording that he did might be the well-known facts. The work left in his the 70's makes it pass his life through music to flow indeed naturally and to agree and make to the embodiment. nt..already..preparation..made.This "Live Evil" will be able to be enumerated in one of the parts where they were executed at an early stage.

Album Art of this album will surely associate a culture and a religious feeling of India. It is said that it is made from one "Siva" of the highest god of Hinduism and drawn. And, it is said the kind of of one it of "Yantra" that means sacred wave motion a surrounding pattern.

The concept that Miles Davis showed the concern is surely reflected in the performance. However, the performance and the idea that he has done up to now are digested to them and being offered to the listener as original music. The concept that Miles considered of course at that time appears in the arriving place. It surely associates "Siva" though opening "Sivad" of this album is a title that replaces spelling "Davis" oppositely. The soundscape of this tune, the part of Groove, and the dash feeling surely hear the idea and advancement as the performance. And, "Selim" is a title that replaces spelling "Miles". Of course, this "Live Evil" will be time sentence.

It performs to the point to have to make a special mention of this album with the member known by competing with Miles before. And, the perfection of ensemble to answer the creation of Miles. And, Bass player's Michael Henderson is excavated. Or, it competes with Keith Jarrett evaluated that the most wonderful in the musician who is related of Miles up to now. These elements might be conspicuous in the work of Miles in the 70's. And, the existence of John McLaughlin that guesses it was necessary to make the concept of this album an embodiment further might be also important. In addition, Khalil Balakrishna of the Sitar player who participated in this album corresponds to "Vishnu" of the god of Hinduism. These agreeing might almost apply to the element that Miles exactly thought about.

Strong power and dash feeling of "What I Say". And, the anacatesthesia of "Nem Um Talvez". Music might surely conceive the change and advancement. Many of the performance to which the concept of an electronic element was taken when performing in the early the 70's might be the well-known facts. It is possible to listen to those parts enough even by "Miles Davis At Fillmore". This album in the reaching flow might be important to "On The Corner" and enough in his Music's history.
