Some great moments but I definitely prefer his more 'jazz/fusion' works i.e. Kind Of Blues, In A Silent Way, Milestones, Bitches Brew.

It’s a fine album but I don’t love it. I understand the Concierto de Aranjuez is a reinterpretation but it still feels to me a numbed-down version of the original classical concert oriented towards aesthetic. The whole album is to me an ode more of Spanish sound than that of feeling, but Spanish folk has a specific focus on the latter so the songs end up presenting a lively image of the country but not focusing on what I feel makes Spanish folk special. Listen to Paco de Lucia’s version of the Concierto de Aranjuez. The Saeta, on the other habd, is a good interpretation, keeping an essence of the genre and making it it’s own. So overall not fantastic, but still a nice listen.

While Concierto De Aranjuez is all kinds of epic, the two shorter songs that follow are what make this an all-time classic.

Miles' best. For some reason I picture walking across some vast landscape when listening. Dreamy.

After the second song, I just wasn't in the mood, maybe I will come back to it.
