Always thought the snare drum was on the 2 & 4 beat, and the bass drum on 1 & 3 in rock music... well, whether it's jazz fusion, avant-garde jazz, experimental jazz, future jazz, tribal acid jazz, tropical/subtropical psychedelic jazz rock (I'm just inventing names now)... whatever it is, it's a fascinatingly strange brew that I've never quite tasted before and never will again!

An extraordinary album by a visionary that brought the worlds of Jazz, Funk and Rock together and literally fused them into an amalgam to be known simply as: Fusion.

From sethmadsen 04/13/2013 10:16
As amazing as this is, I don't understand why people call it a fusion of rock n' roll and jazz... just because it has electric bass, guitar, and piano in it? The most important part of rock n' roll is that the snare is on the 1 & 3 beat and bass drum is on the 2 & 4 beat. Nothing like this ever happens on this album (maybe Miles Runs the voodoo down)... granted, I understand it is fusion jazz... but just because something has electric or non-electric instruments doesn't automatically mean it is borrowing influences from rock n' roll... I guess just rock music in general... anyways, in my opinion it is simply Jazz with electrical instruments. I think this is one reason why I don't like labels... half the time they aren't even true (grunge imo for example, is a trick on kids to buy "new" music).

From ~SMiLE~ 03/11/2013 21:24
A spontaneous chaotic unpredictable atmosphere permeates "Bitches Brew". Some may find this album to be a bit too random and confusing, due to it's unconventional style, feeling it to be a bad acid trip. Too all over the place.

The spontaneity is contained within a framework. The bandleader, Miles Davis, can be heard whispering cues or instructions and snapping his fingers to indicating tempo. After recording, Miles took to the tapes, splicing, editing and moving them around further arranging the songs.


Theres a darkness to this trend setting album. It's a dense atmospheric ride. You can lose yourself in these potent moods and distinct instrumentations, piled in layers upon layers.


An intense, unique, improvisational sounding groundbreaking album.
