this does have some amazing moments, but Sketches and Johnson have been my faves for a while now.

Sketches may be his best in terms of composition, but that has a lot to do with Evans. Johnson is great but very raw, so I would say, of the ones I've heard (because we're all forgetting a few, including Filles de Kilimanjaro)

Sketches > In a Silent Way > Kind of Blue > Johnson

but they're all very different so that changes a lot.

It's like the musical equivalent of a hypnotist's watch or something.

id say a love supreme and black saint beat anything miles has done, and apart from this album, all his work with wayne shorter is probably his best. im still a coltrane man through and through though.

buuut then you have to factor in guys like andrew hill, sam rivers, joe henderson, wayne shorter, then all the avant/free stuff too...

I don't really understand...I'm not a huge fan of most of the second quintet albums (yet), except for Miles Smiles, but I love Shorter's stuff on Blue Note from the same era.

This is my favourite album to put on before I sleep. If I'm really tired, then I just play the title track.
