Too complex to get one's head around in a single listen.

One of the best jazz albums out there. Basically everyone here has that one album that got them into jazz, and it usually holds a dear position in their mind. I see for a lot of people that that album is Kind of Blue, and sometimes A Love Supreme. They're good albums, but when I listned to them both, trying to get into jazz, they didn't really click for me. But then I listened to bitches brew, and it all made sense. This album isn't just jazz, it's never noodling for the sake of noodling, it is art. Pure and simple.

There is something so engaging about the ever-propulsive momentum and the way the notes appear to dance delicately between each other. I was introduced to 'In a Silent Way' first, and loved it, but this feels like that album realised in grandiose, funked-out glory. Alternatively you could argue that In a Silent Way is the more cohesive, truer to jazz album of the pair and that Bitches Brew outstays it's welcome, but I don't know, I enjoy the ridiculousness of this album. On a knife-edge it manages to pull off it's maximalist pomposity in a way a lot of "jazz-fusion" can't (including some later Davis stuff). And it is so transportive, I feel like I am inside that cover art. I can't find anything out there that comes anywhere near the tone and colour of this album. Truly mind-blowing.

A lot of this album feels like paranoia captured in song form. Pop it on at 3 AM and walk down a eerily quiet urban street. Makes me feel like I'm about to get mugged and I love it.

Oh man. I don't understand Jazz fusion enough to do a review of this album justice, but this thing is wild! The music is all over the place. To pull another cliche and quote Thom Yorke "It was building something up and watching it fall apart, that's the beauty of it".

What a stunning album. From start to finish it is mindblowing. The amount of invention and originality is breathtaking. It has to be listened to in it's entirety to fully appreciate it. I think of it as a second in a trilogy after in a silent way and before Jack Johnson. Perfect.

The first and best known of Mile's jazz rock fusion albums. Spanish Key and the title track are the highlights though the record is a little front loaded.Subsequent albums down on the corner and jack johnson are perhaps tighter..
