""In Concert" has its flaws--the last 30 minutes for instance--but it's taut and spare, propulsive and funky and motile. It's certainly a more agile manifestation of Miles' vision than the Cellar Door session (which, of course, possess their own beauty) but it's not quite as bloated and self-indulgent as the Pangaea/Agharta albums. This band has purged most of its "jazz" affectations--think Jarrett/Correa/DeJohnette--and settled into something...familiar yet otherworldy. These musicians are able to play in a less ornate fashion, something closer to what (I think) Miles wanted at the time. Yes, it's based in rock, funk, etc...but it's something else, too. Something drawn out, fractured and abstracted but still very groove-oriented. There's something desperate and frantic about it and I love that quality.
Listen, if you're checking out the reviews of this album...and you gone deep enough into the discography to FIND and be CURIOUS about this album, just get it. It's worth it.
*The only exception to this comment is the "It's About That Time" 1970 Fillmore album with Wayne Shorter. This album will kill you if you let it."
Miles never ceases to amaze...

"There's not much else you can say about Miles Davis that hasn't already been said. Miles is undoubtedly the godfather of improvisational music, and this performance documents yet another monumental musical transcendence by the master himself. I initially thought this era of Miles' lineup was lacking a Jarrett, Corea and/or Shorter style of technical accompaniment, but now admire these mid '70's lineups for their ambiance and uncharted musical exploration. Open your ears and your mind and Miles will bring you beyond the tangible and conscious."
