4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, 11 April 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Filles De Kilimanjaro (Audio CD)
This is an album compiled from various Miles' NY Columbia sessions, circa 1968, I hadn't heard before. Although the production smacks of one of those 'let's trawl the Davis archive and make some money', with a 14'36" outtake of the earlier 14'07" Tout de Suite added-on for good measure, it's actually fresh, lyrical and well worth listening to. Said to define some kind of boundary between his early bepop style and his later electro-funk psychosis(sorry!), it's still pretty accessible; while the esoteric title and cover art will impress browsers on your jazz shelf. The first of the two quintets represented here features Herbie Hancock on electric piano, replaced in the second by Chick Corea. That about says it all; Dave Holland comes in on bass as this was I think about the time Ron Carter moved on. The great Wayne Shorter tenors, Tony Williams rocks, studio production is by the reliable Teo Macero and the package has a kind of French theme-night appeal, without the accordions and the soupe a l'oignon. Va t'en, bebe, you won't be disappointed.

Steve says:
There was NO "trawling". This was originally conceived as an album (without the alternate take, of course). I bought the LP when it first came out, in about 1969. It is a classic album, and is one of the greatest showcases for Tony Williams. The LP had a very long playing time. In those days, Columbia used to push up the timing as high as about 30 minutes a side, which kinda puts to shame the labels that usually had 18 minutes a side, and often considerably less.
