Biography

by William Ruhlmann

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

Someone once said that holding a book is like holding a garden in your hand, well holding this box set is a bit like that - a few days before Christmas 1965 - can you imagine what Chicago must have been like? Deep in the Plugged Nickel Miles' 2nd great quintet decide that they will produce as good a jazz as there has ever been over two nights, then go home for Christmas or whatever, i don't know... But in this box is music as rich varied and rewarding as you'll find anywhere on this great earth. The track list might look repetative but what they are playing is almost nominal, its like complainig if an explorer took two ships that were built the same and then pointed them in unknown, but different directions!
Sure this box is a commitment but its a garden in your hand to treasure until you get to meet miles for real. I can't wait to hear this music for the 100th, 200th time i love it in a i want to get old with it way - and it was more or less another gig for the 2nd great quintet!

This set must be the best live jazz ever recorded. Miles had just come out of hospital (hip replacement) & sounds really excited at playing again - especially with such supremely good musicians. Everything abt this music is fluid - pitch, harmony, time (especially) - tony williams is the driving creative force - but miles controls with such gentle mastery that the whole thing coheres - it could so readily have slipped into rambling self-indulgence. Each repeated track sounds so unlike the previous that you'd be forgiven for not realising what they're improvising on. Each musician is at his creative peak (except perhaps herbie) & the recording is excellent. This may seem like an expensive investment but I can guarantee you'll not be disappointed - it replays constant relistening - one of the few recordings you'll never tire of.

I thought I'd add this review in just to give a more balanced view of the legendary Plugged Nickel sessions, and help those that don't have it worry a little less about owning this collection.

I also bought this the first day it came out. As a young pro jazz musician I was eager to hear what was inside this long hidden Aladdin's cave of musical jewels. I was a little disappointed to say the least. The music is brimming over with energy and the band is killing, that much is true. However, what a lot of fans seem to blatantly ignore is that one person is ruining the whole thing........Miles!

There are many stories about Miles at this period and especially how the Plugged Nickel session was a kind of 'end of an era' type of thing. Miles hadn't been playing much as was his style at the time, party hard and play jazz later - all this can be read in his various biographies. This shows up on the Plugged Nickel where quite frankly what you hear is a musician whose chops are not 'on form'. His phrases are short, not well developed and his tone thin and hesitant. Just listen to any of the other albums from that period - there are live bootlegs around also - E.S.P, Nefertiti etc. His playing is glorious on those records, beautiful tone, phrasing, lines, rhythm, it's all there. But not on these evenings recorded here!

Of course the others - young cats ready to burn - were happy to play, as young players always are. Wayne Shorter - if I remember correctly - was drunk on one of the evenings, which probably accounts for some great 'wild' playing. Herbie, Ron and Tony played with burning conviction.

So, my opinion is that if you don't own the box set DON'T spend mega-bucks on it.
