Miles Davis in 10 Albums

by Marc Zisman

Thirty years after his death, Miles Davis is still one of the most important musicians of his time. The trumpeter's impressive discography perfectly sums up his perpetually questioning, probing attitude; and also shows how his influence reaches out beyond the world of jazz. These ten albums, selected subjectively from among a sea of revolutionary works, prove it.

Bitches Brew (Columbia – 1970)

The rhythmic work on In a Silent Way had laid the foundations for a new era. But everything really changed in the summer of that same year 1969 when Miles Davis locked himself away with twelve musicians to record what would become the iconic double album Bitches Brew, released in April 1970. The collision between jazz, rhythm'n'blues, funk and rock'n'roll was violent. This was like nothing audiences had ever heard before. It was a 90-minute magic trick in which the trumpeter demonstrated his mastery of Hendrix, funk, rock, blues and a good part of jazz history. Despite this openness, he didn't succeed with the majority of his younger audience, who were not yet mature enough for the complexity of his electric discourse. Purists on the other hand thought that Miles had sold his soul to the devil: some accused him of lapsing into commercialism. The pure ramblings of this extreme and extremist music were a long way from the standard fare of American radio stations: it was hazardous for curious eardrums. Once again, Miles and his accomplices spent hours in the studio improvising around simple motifs and chord progressions, without any prior arrangement. “It was like an orchestra", explained drummer Lenny White, "and Miles was our conductor. We wore headphones. We had to be able to hear each other. There were no guests at that session. No photos allowed. All live recording, no overdubs. 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., for three days”. The master of ceremonies was giving his sidemen carte blanche, but you can sometimes hear him in the distance giving out a few instructions on the record. Even his usually cool playing is much more incisive and even aggressive here. In addition to the faithful Wayne Shorter on saxophone, Dave Holland on bass, Chick Corea on electric piano and Jack DeJohnette on drums, the six themes of Bitches Brew feature Joe Zawinul, John McLaughlin, Larry Young, Lenny White, Don Alias, Juma Santos and Bennie Maupin. The other central character is the recording studio itself. Loops, effects, echo chambers and dozens of collages: Miles and his producer Teo Macero spent hours sculpting this electric blowout. The work was excessive: 'Pharoah’s Dance' was made up of 19 different elements! A pianist and a drummer on the right channel. Another pianist and another drummer in the left. Bitches Brew is about bringing in everything that's possible. It's a far cry from the good old jazz jam session captured in a single take... The result, dark and bewitching, is neither purely rock, nor purely funk, nor purely jazz for that matter. It's... something else!

On the Corner (Columbia – 1972)

On the Corner is the Miles Davis album most in tune with the canon of funk. And not just for the groovy cover by cartoonist Corky McCoy... For the first time, the trumpeter is in the studio with more than fifteen musicians! Its robust cast list is representative of all the effervescence of the music recorded in New York in the summer of 1972. The backbone is the hypnotic bass of Michael Henderson, an ex-Motown stakhanovite. All around him, layers of sound are thrown in by a Miles we don't hear from very often: murderous white noise (he has kitted out his trumpet with a wah wah), percussion with exotic flavours, marathon funk drumming (James Brown's 'Cold Sweat' is quoted here and there by Billy Hart and Jack DeJohnette on the drums); there is a total implosion of the rules of composition, with harmony and melody shunted into second place. This record is a veritable treasure trove of golden sounds, like the famed filtered wah wah effect created when Henderson plugs his bass into a Mu-Tron pedal on 'One And One'. In his autobiography, Miles points out that in addition to the influences of James Brown and Sly Stone (introduced to him by his then-wife, the funk artist Betty Davis), he was affected by those of Ornette Coleman and above all the composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, from whom he says he learned the use of addition and deletion as a method of musical creation. This was a major component in Davis's art, both in front of the microphones and behind the console. A commercial and critical flop, On the Corner and its hypnotic, repetitive motifs would unfortunately find little traction upon release in October 1972. As ever, Miles was ahead of his time...

Tutu (Warner – 1986)

Although the late stage of Miles Davis' career was neither the most fruitful nor the most artistically astounding, it nevertheless coincided with the peak of his fame. Whatever he did, the trumpeter, who certainly had nothing left to prove, had become an untouchable and adored figure who played to full houses all over the world. From the comeback track The Man With the Horn in 1981 to his death on 28 September 1991 at the age of 65, his recordings - which were very electric - always sought to be rooted in their times and to showcase younger musicians. With its magnificent cover (a black and white portrait signed by photographer Irving Penn), the very funky Tutu is one of the highlights of his final decade. In 1986, Miles left Columbia, his (almost) lifelong home, to join Warner. This was the occasion for another musical departure: yet another jazz-funk fusion project. Tutu was the result. This album was also the fruit of collaboration with another musician: Marcus Miller. This electric bassist, a worthy heir to Jaco Pastorius and Larry Graham, concocted for the trumpeter a modern musical backdrop that would propel Miles back to centre stage. It was a stunning return of the synthesiser, which naturally had a very 80s sound. "My first meeting with Miles was in 1981", the bassist recounted 20 years later. "I had spent two years in his group, it was a huge blessing. My aim was to be able to do it all: writing, playing producing. In 1986, Miles did his sessions with Prince, but that didn't satisfy his new label. So I was writing and thinking of him. He listened to my demos and said OK right away. In the studio, I was too overawed to direct him. ‘You've GOT to tell me how you want me to play,’ he yelled. And I did what he said"... In addition to these two men, Tutu brought together veterans and long-time studio sharks, who were always happy to come and do a stint for Miles. Featuring George DukeOmar Hakim, Bernard Wright, Michał Urbaniak, Jason MilesPaulinho da CostaAdam Holzman, Steve Reid and Billy Hart, Tutu was the perfect soundtrack for the mid-80s, when synths ruled and suits were worn two sizes too big. In the midst of this highly stylised, very Miami Vice setting, Miles' phrasing remained as airy, poetic and timeless as ever.
