All About Jazz
And only an artist as confident and focused as Miles could pull such strong performances out of a group that had played very little together; the album is a continuing testimony to Miles’ strength as a leader. […]

Accelerated Decrepitude
The music showed that something was afoot. The new music fit the new generationand it was an appropriate accompaniment for Elevator to the Gallows, with its young, streetwise punk Louis, who seems as chaotic and jarring as the Miles Davis soundtrack.” […]

This recording can stand proudly alongside Duke Ellington‘s music from Anatomy of a Murder and the soundtrack of Play Misty for Me as great achievements of artistic excellence in fusing dramatic scenes with equally compelling modern jazz music. […]
