Beautiful images and beautiful music, they don’t make either like this anymore. Bitches Brew ranks up there as one of my all time favorite album covers.

iIve always enjoyed In A Silent Way, the cover was so intense yet very simple. Around The Corner is a good cover too, it has this Saturday morning cartoon vibe too it. Both very influential records, to me at least. :)

I was always partial to Miles’ early work, Plays for Lovers remains my favorite collection of tunes, but later and more well-known work like Bitches Brew is an undeniable cornerstone of jazz.

That Miles in the Sky cover is excellent, I love the use of so many colors and abstract shapes– leaves a lot up to interpretation. I see his face in an almost Rorschach formation.

“Stuff” from Miles In The Sky has got to be one of my most favorite jams ever. Such a simple song, yet so completely bad ass. I think it was one of the first times, if not THE first time, Ron Carter played electric bass. Thanks for the covers…gotta go get my iPod.
