miles davis: in a silent way (released july 30, 1969)

The moment the title track to Miles Davis’ still-sublime In a Silent Way album – a haunting, atmospheric reflection penned by future Weather Report chieftain Josef Zawinul – spills over into the discreet organ-fueled funk of It’s About That Time, the defintion unalterably blurred as to what was or wasn’t contemporary jazz. To those raised on the studied cool Davis established with two expert quintets earlier in the ‘60s, the move was as treasonous as when Bob Dylan jumped from folk to rock ‘n’ roll. For those prepared for a new jazz recipe, and Davis was absolutely one of them, the album was a call to arms with grooves both earthy and dreamlike. Electric jazz may not have fully started with In a Silent Way. And it wouldn’t strike a revolutionary blow until Davis unveiled Bitches Brew a year later. Still, it captured jazz at a cultural and generational crossroads. It remains a wondrous summertime listen to this day.
