Certain Songs #1144: Miles Davis – “Shh/Peaceful”

Album: In a Silent Way
Year: 1969

On one hand, only a decade separated In A Silent Way from Kind of Blue. But on the other hand, centuries separated the two records, as In a Silent Way mixed jazz and rock instrumentations, rhythms and production techniques into something that was completely and totally new under the sun.

And nearly 50 years later, I’m still not sure anybody has quite caught up to it.
