In the past, I've been one to naively pooh-pooh Davis' departure from "pure" acoustic jazz. Now, after listening to this and reminding myself that it was recorded in 1969, I am simply blown away. Fretful Porpentine
After scouring the jazz section, I picked up two Miles Davis CDs, In A Silent Way and Filles De Kilimanjaro. I've been listening to them for the last couple hours...gorgeous, soulful and timeless music! Armen Chakmakian
Now though I wanted to mention that Miles Davis's song In a Silent Way helps me pray. It is very beautiful. ChristopherSly
I keep coming back to [Van] Morrison's ultra-elongated Common One. Often dismissed as dull and indulgent, it's first of his meditational '80s works, and owes much to Miles Davis' In a Silent Way. Jim Walsh
In a Silent Way is a one of kind record that mixed the late-'60s pop and underground movement into the jazz realm. On this record Miles began to hook into the late '60s sounds that flowed from the jam bands in San Francisco. Trevor MacLaren
I'm not a fan of jam bands (except maybe the Allman Brothers' Live at Fillmore East) and yet this is great music.
