Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MILES DAVIS

The Complete On the Corner Sessions

2007-09-24

A collection of over 6 1/2 hours of music covering Miles’ studio recordings from ’72 to ’75 – including 12 previously unreleased tracks! Features Michael Henderson, Al Foster, Mtume, Dave Liebman, Sonny Fortune, Carlos Garnett, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Reggie Lucas, Pete Cosey, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Hart, Badal Roy, Don Alias, Bennie Maupin, Lonnie Liston Smith, and Cedric Lawson. This is Miles taking it beyond the outer limits of jazz – capturing a time in history when he and his band were selling out stadiums worldwide. The Complete On the Corner Miles Davis (1972-1975) in six discs – master takes, edits, LP versions and more. The chaos to order journey of On the Corner is compelling and literally electric. This is about the rhythm. The ‘Jazz Establishment’ considered this heretical at the time – the funk will survive!
