Miles and Miles to Go

Miles Davis was not only one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time, he was a pioneer of avant garde sounds. Listen to "Bitches Brew" from 1969 and tell me this wouldn't sound right at home at the Ojai Music Festival.

This was the very first jazz fusion album, but what exactly it was fusing is hard to tell - everything from bebop to Stravinsky to Delta Blues. Here's part 1 of 6. I encourage you to link through to all of them.
