type:
Music
Current Status:

performer:
Bill Laswell

We gave it a B+

Using outtakes from the original historic sessions, producer Laswell remixes selected pieces from Davis’ epochal fusion recordings, In a Silent Way, On the Corner, and Get Up With It, into four interwoven suites on Panthalassa: The Music of Miles Davis 1969-1974 whose most radical quality is the reverence that Laswell pays to his sources. Whether rhythmically bustling or meditative, these tracks seethe with Davis’ still-startling visions.
