Bitches brew by Miles Davis( Recording )
61 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zum 40. Jubiläum des Meilensteins 'Bitches Brew' (1970) von Miles Davis erscheint die Platte in einer Sonderedition, in der das ursprüngliche Tracklisting um bisher unveröffentlichte Titel ergänzt wird. Ausserdem liegt eine DVD mit einem Livemitschnitt eines Auftrittes vom November 1969 in Kopenhagen, bei dem Teile des im April 1970 folgenden Albums gespielt wurden. Dieses Konzert ist ebenfalls unveröffentlicht. Die Besetzung ist jeweils beeindruckend: An der Studioaufnahme nahmen neben Miles Davis (Trompete) Wayne Shorter (Saxofone), Joe Zawinul und Chick Corea (beide Piano), Lenny White und Jack DeJohnette (beide Schlagzeug), John McLaughlin (Gitarre), Dave Holland (Bass) u.a. teil. Auf der Bühne spielte das Quintett Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Chick Core, Dave Holland und Jack DeJohnette. Mit 'Bitches Brew' stiess der innovative Davis einmal mehr eine neue Tür auf, die Platte gilt - noch mehr als der Vorgänger 'In a silent way' - als Wegbereiter des Fusion-Jazz. ä'Bitches Brew' is so forward thinking, it retains its freshness and mystery in the 21st centuryä (
