Miles, Miles, Miles

Am rockin' an absurd amount of Miles at the moment. It's SO DAMN GOOD. rStill can't get into bitches brew though, god knows how I try
1Miles Davis
A Tribute to Jack Johnson

My personal favorite at the moment. His most straight up rock album, 'Right
Off' is a monster of a groove with some badass John McLaughlin riffing, and
a truly unhinged solo from Davis. Herbie Hancock later wanders in with
some groceries to deliver a storming section on what sounds like a toy
organ. Flawless.
2Miles Davis
In A Silent Way

The album that got me into his electric period. Supreme.
3Miles Davis

Somewhat underrated mid-60s Miles, and his first excursion with perhaps
his greatest group (inc. Hancock and Shorter). Very similar to Kind of Blue, if
a tad more adventurous, and good few shades less genius. Served as a
lead-up to....
4Miles Davis
Miles Smiles

His greatest non-electric album, except for KoB. The musicianship is
stunning, the grooves mellow,and the interplay borderline-telepathic, even
by Miles' standards. Shorter's sax playing is in particular a delight.
5Miles Davis
Dark Magus

'Cause I put this on most lists, so it should go on the Miles Davis one, right?
Deep, nasty, paranoid funk, delivered with the maximum of grit and the
minimum of melody. Oppressive, heavier than any metal, and goddamn
