And I thought Bitches Brew was unfocused. Well, it was–and it was also pretty great. This is more unfocusedand not great. […]

Now, however, with some distance, I can get into a lot of these grooves. Particularly in the longer excursions, one can get a real sense of the manic energy of these shows. Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea are especially driving forces on organ and electric piano respectively and when they get to take charge of a song, it becomes a firestorm. […]

Organically, in a live setting, it isn’t the way Miles worked; pieces would evolve, slowly, with a kind of spooky continuity. […]
