"On The Corner" by Miles Davis (1972)
Miles Davis "On The Corner"  1972 (USA)
Miles Davis would have been 96 years old this week. Our classic album is another one from 50 years ago: 1972. Miles had been releasing electric rock/funk oriented albums for a couple years when On The Corner came out, but the jazz world seemed totally unprepared for this. Miles doesn't play much trumpet, the band doesn't bother with chord changes, and only one track even has much of a melody! Instead what you get are relentless, cascading polyrhythms and blasts of funky, dirty electronic noise. It's almost like Miles invented "industrial" music! Love it or hate it, it is one of the most singular recordings of Davis' career and of the entire 1970's decade.
