Dckne - "Electric Miles" Mix
"..The most important priority is to arouse your band, not the people."
Miles Davis and his electric period.. There are tons of articles, books and essays about the works, the history, the discography of the Jazz trompetist. But it is also important to take an interest in the musicians that accompanied the master in his musical journey. Billy Cobham, Chick Corea, Gary Bartz, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, John McLaughlin, Keith Jarrett, Lenny White, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter... to name a few.
Without them the masterpieces that Miles' realised during his electric period wouldn't sound as perfect as they do ; and without Miles, the musicians probably wouldn't have outdone themselves the way they did... or the result surely wouldn't have been the same.
The purpose of this mix is to call to mind how funky, groovy, provocative, creative, vanguard and impeccable Miles Davis and his collective of virtuosos were, as an ensemble, and how heavily they enriched not only jazz, but global music heritage.
Electric Miles Mix, one hour and forty minutes of jazz, rock, psychedelic rock, funk, jazz-funk... No matter how you want to label it, a getaway into unequaled, supreme quality music that can hardly be emphasised enough ⚡
