Thought by many to be among the most revolutionary albums in jazz history, Miles Davis ' Bitches Brew solidified the genre known as jazz-rock fusion. Originally thought to be a series of long jams locked into grooves around keyboard, bass, or guitar vamps, Bitches Brew is actually a recording that producer Teo Macero assembled from various jams and takes by razor blade, splice to splice, section to section.

Corea and Zawinul 's keyboards create a haunted, riffing modal groove, echoed and accented by the basses of Harvey Brooks and Holland. The title cut was originally composed as a five-part suite, though only three were used.

Here the keyboards punch through the mix and big chords ring up distorted harmonics for Davis to solo rhythmically over, Pharaohs Dance - Miles Davis - Bitches Brew the mode. McLaughlin 's comping creates a vamp, and the bass and drums carry the rest. It's a small taste of the deep voodoo funk to appear on Davis ' later records. Side three opens with McLaughlin and Davis trading fours and eights over a lockstep hypnotic vamp on "Spanish Key.

It nearly segues into the brief "John McLaughlin," featuring an organ playing modes below arpeggiated blues guitar Pharaohs Dance - Miles Davis - Bitches Brew . The end of Bitches Brewsignified by the stellar "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down," reflects the influence of Jimi Hendrix with its chunky, slipped chords and Davis playing a Games Of Mutilation - Last Days Of Humanity / Regurgitate - Last Days Of Humanity / Regurgitate melody through the funkiness of the rhythm section.

It seemingly dances, becoming increasingly more chaotic until it nearly disintegrates before shimmering into a loose foggy nadir.

The disc closes with "Sanctuary," completely redone here as a moody electric ballad that was reworked for this band while keeping enough of its integrity to be recognizable. Bitches Brew is so forward-thinking that it retains its freshness and mystery in the 21st century.
