Discover Miles Davis


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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man with the Horn 25 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you like jazz, funk and rock rolled into one, then this is the album for you. More rocky than most Miles albums with great guitar solos and driving funk basslines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still delightful after all those years 11 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I started to discover the music of Miles Davis during his years of retirement in the late seventies. "The Man With The Horn" was among the first recordings of Miles I bought. I immediately loved it and still do. Most of the songs are propelled by the forceful drumming of Al Foster and Marcus Miller's great bass. Guitarists Barry Finnerty and Mike Stern as well as saxman Bill Evans are in great shape too. Two songs ("Shout" and the title tune) are more mellow or pop-like, though they fortunately avoid the cheapness (sorry) of later covers like Cindy Lauper's "Time after time".

Miles himself is in great shape too. Forget what the critics say about him trying to regain his former chops. The music on "The Man With The Horn" is bold and energetic, it's groovy and funky, it's jazz that rocks. I've listened to the record and the cd many hundreds of times and I'm sure I'll never be bored even for a second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to Miles Davis .... 6 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this through a friend who had the album in 1982.
I'd vaguely heard of Miles Davis, knew that he was something big in jazz in the 50's and 60's. I was told he'd been off the scene for a while; been ill apparently. But why was Marcus Miller on this album?, I mused; after all, wasn't Miles Davis just some bebop head? To protestations proclaiming otherwise, I was expecting something out of the 1950's.
How wrong I was.
The infectious rhythm of 'Fat Time', courtesy of Marcus and Al Foster; the way it builds step by funky step, with Miles injecting his unique trumpet sounds along the way had me hooked by the first few bars. Bill Evans, then Mike Stern, both unknown (to me, anyway), lay down some HEAVY solos that just go on and on in a pure rock sound (had Miles gone for a coffee, I wondered). I liked it. What's next?
Then 'Back Seat Betty' opens with a growling guitar scream, Barry Finnerty using feedback like you never heard on a jazz cut. Once again the rhythm section drives the track along; it cruises with sly intent, rather than drives confidently down the road. Miles puts down a vibe. Then the guitar scream begins the next part, with Miles and Bill matching the anger in solos that never seem indulgent. By now I was entranced.
'Shout' always makes me think that's how Herb Alpert would sound if he'd lived in a project. But after the near 12 minutes of 'Betty', it's a welcome relief, really.
'Aida' follows; it grinds along with venom, as though bebop met 4/4 rock and kicked its ass by adapting all its moves.
The next track 'The Man With The Horn' sits VERY uneasily amongst all of this mayhem. That's the best I can say. Was it perhaps meant to be a hit single?
'Ursula' is what I'd been expecting all along.
