Miles Davis

The Complete On the Corner Sessions

The last in a series of "complete sessions" boxsets documenting the behind-the-scenes sounds that were taken from to create multiple Miles Davis albums, The Complete On the Corner sessions is among the most exciting. This six disc set is made up of recordings from between 1972 and 1975, all of which were edited into several of Miles' most controversial records. The swirling, minimal funk of On the Corner is the set's main focus, and hearing these hypnotic jams in full brings new clarity to the phase in Davis' career when he was turning aggressively away from jazz to try to create something completely new.
