  • Miles Davis ESP

    I liked this review by Fred particularly how he highlighted the addition of Wayne Shorter to the group! Miles had never been happy with his choice of tenor sax player and at times there was outright disharmony between Williams and Coleman at times.



    E.S.P., recorded over three sessions in January 1965, marked a major turning point in the music of Miles Davis. Throughout his life—as a sideman to Charlie Parker in the 1940s, a rock-jazz fusionist in the '80s, and the many phases in between—Davis was a restless spirit, a cauldron of change, the spark of several evolutions in the history of jazz.

    Thanks Myles. It is true with the addition of Shorter the quintet went into a magical realm inhabited by few in jazz. This is my favorite group of all time. But...do not overlook the earlier, Miles Davis "My Funny Valentine" and "Four And More", a 1964 NAACP concert where even with George Coleman, the group brings straight ahead jazz to a celestial level worthy of any work of genius. That concert is the epitome of rhythm section playing and is the bible of comping (complementing or supporting other players). To boot Miles plays magically. George Coleman plays quite well. But the group interaction is as good as it comes and perhaps the best ever (except maybe Bill Evans' "Portrait in Jazz" is in that league) and marks for me the final statement for Miles and his group of straight ahead jazz. Herbie Hancock plays as well as he ever played before or after. A must listen performance. Listen to the performance of the tune, "My Funny Valentine", and you'll hear some of the best and surely the best rhythm section work you'll ever hear. Other performances from the concert are of the same level.
