Miles Davis was going through exciting musical changes in 1968, listening and playing things which were leading him into the future, a new electric sound for his album "In a Silent Way". There are only 2 tracks, each one lasting a side of the original LP release. On the title track, Miles threw away Joe Zawinul's chord sheets, and in the process he transformed the original melody of "In a Silent Way" into a sublime electric mantra that is overwhelmingly beautiful and fresh. On "Shhh/Peaceful," Dave Holland and John McLaughlin intertwine to create a circularly repeating rhythm which melds elements of traditional Indian music to subtle funk, creating a trance-like groove.
"In a Silent Way" represents one of the most important self-declarations of artistic independence to ever go down in jazz history. This recording has been mastered by the K2 HD format of 24-bit 100kHz, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats. This K2 HD Mastering CD will play on all CD players.
