This review is from: Agharta (Audio CD)
Have loved this album and Pangaea since their first release.
I would like to offer a perspective on Miles's trumpet sound during these albums.
This review is from: Miles to Go: The Lost Years by Chris Murphy - Chris's experience of living and working with Miles as his Roadie from 1973 to 1976 and 1981 to 1983.
There is one story about Miles at the time of the 1975 Agharta and Pangaea live recordings which was so touching. Chris explains the pain and pathos in his trumpet solos on these sessions were a real reflection of the actual body pain he was experiencing whilst playing. The conversation that followed when Miles came off stage was this; Chris said, "Miles, that had all the pain in the world in it." Miles turned to Chris and smiled and said, "It's supposed to." Now that is Miles living and performing in the moment.
This says it all!
