Sorry but I just don't get it !!
on 20 November 2017
The actual CD's are nicely packaged in a plastic jewel (not cardboard) case which contains a great informative booklet and I absolutely love the CD cover back and front ! I truly wanted so much to enjoy this offering by Miles Davis but despite listening to it a dozen times all the way through I just think it sounds awful ! I do appreciate the fact that all the musicians are of the highest calibre but it just sounds like one long jam session where nobody knows what the other person is playing !! The dissonance and weird time signatures are just too much and have totally lost me. Nevertheless I will give it another few listens as I feel I am missing out on something iconic and truly significant in the history of music (or so everybody tells me)
