I prefer Kind of Blue and Milestones because you get an introduction to modal jazz. There is modal music in classical music, but Miles Davis introduced us to modal jazz in 1958.
Too many different periods/styles to pick just one, but to mix it up in this thread I will go with Agharta from the voodoo-funk-fusion era, recorded live in Osaka 1975:
I guess you could argue that this is the calm before the top went off the roof with Bitches Brew. Wayne is just genius.
Many moons since I spun Agharta, thanks for mentioning as problem solved!
edit: I’d forgotten that Lalo Schifrin guitar intro…
… and Pete Cosey Sun Ra influenced synth accents.
Miles Davis, 1959 mono Jazz Track, NM condition. Side 1: Elevator to the Scaffold/ L’Ascenseur Pour l’Echafaud.
Has anyone heard any of the 2022 & 2023 Remasters available at HDTracks? I just noticed them and wonder how they compare to the MFSL SACD’s. I’m specifically interested in: Nefertiti, E.S.P., and “Four” & More. I’d love to not purchase yet another copy of each, but the 25% off sale and 192/24 made me interested.
Your post generated an AP order for Bag’s. This one:
Let us know what you think of it once in hand.
I’ve had it for a few weeks. It’s fkkn killer. Still available from acousticsounds, I believe.
I have the vinyl version and killer indeed.
If you are into records the Analog Productions Quiet Kenny is also killer:
I’ve had that SACD a few years. Best sounding way I have to listen to this excellent session.
I won’t get tired of this one for a long time.
E.S.P. (Impex and MoFi); Kind of Blue (UHQR 45, Mastersound Gold CD and Classic 33): these two get played most often.
Nice to have options, but yes it’s a stand-out.
I entirely forgot about my Impex E.S.P., very nice sound.
