Miles Davis Second Quintet
When Miles Davis formed his new quintet with tenorman Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter and the young drummer Tony Williams, he knew that they were “going to be a motherfucker of a group.” He was absolutely right. I have been playing their materials again and again starting from E.S.P, Miles Smiles, Sorcerer, Nefertiti, Miles in the Sky and Filles de Kilimanjaro. Except for the last two, in which Miles started to move toward fusion, the rest of the albums are just incredible acoustic jazz. If your haven’t picked up Miles Davis: The Complete Columbia Album Collection already, you definitely should. You’re missing out on great stuff.
