Default Re: Random Thoughts

I've been listening to 'Agharta' this evening. It's a live album recorded in Japan on February 1, 1975, with one hell of a good band, and it's the last thing that Miles Davis recorded before he went into his hermitage.

The only thing I can find wrong with it is that I'm not the drummer. Man, I could eat this music with my soul on my drums, I was born to play music like this.

Al Foster does a very good job, though, I've got to give him that.

One of the best recordings of Miles Davis' musical vision ever made. It's goddam beautiful. How did he do that, how did he get a band to speak like that?

This music made in 1975 sounds like it was recorded this week. It grooves, it's a bastard, it's genius, man. Miles Davis.
