Reviews

When Davis felt he could go no further with straight-ahead acoustic jazz, he embraced the electric age... by 1969, when he recorded the monumental double album Bitches Brew-the subject of a perceptive new monograph by George Grella Jr. in the 33 1/3 series-he had forged a bold new style, later dubbed the "electric Miles." Today no period of Davis's work exerts as much fascination for young jazz musicians. * The New York Review of Books *
George Grella Jr. discusses time and the slippage thereof in Bitches Brew (one of the latest additions to the brilliant 33 1/3 series) ... [An] articulate and thought-provoking book ... [Grella] writes well about the music on the album itself, providing a readable and non-technical description of musical themes ... [and] offering insight into the construction ... of individual tracks and the album as a whole. * International Times *
George Grella dissects the creative process engineered by Miles Davis album, delves into the motivations that led its creator to break with the basics of swing and incorporate influences from rock and unprecedented use of recording techniques in jazz . Grella also devotes two chapters to study the outstanding technical features of each of the six items on the double LP ... and explores with passion, wit and analytical rigor [the] constellation of musical, social and psychological forces that came together to produce one of the most revolutionary works of contemporary music. * El Intruso (translated from Spanish) *
A worthwhile companion to your next Miles Davis listening session. * Jazzinstitut (Bloomsbury translation) *
