It’s About That Time . . . to put on some Miles.

One album, Two songs
Shhh / Peaceful
In A Silent Way / It’s About That Time

1968/69 – This is the pivotal album in which Miles transitions to electric instruments, adding to his quintet a third keyboardist, Joe Zawinul, and John McLaughlin’s electric guitar. Davis, influenced at this time by Hendricks and Sly and the Family Stone, here lays the groundwork for his transformation into the 1970’s, fusing jazz with rock to create the funkier grooving sound that would take him through the next decade.

Run / Bike / Enjoy!
