Always the innovator, Miles (here in his last commercially-released recording) leaves behind the bebop, cool jazz, and extended hard jazz-funk improvisations, and shifts over to jazz fusion heavily spiced with electronics. This should surprise no one; like Picasso, Miles continuously reinvented his art while retaining its essence. What perhaps is surprising is that all of his re-styles remain pretty consistently high quality. Some listeners may object to the drum machine in this – but a second listen shows how subtly he’s using it (it’s not just a mechanical boom-boom-boom in the bass) and how it interweaves with his trumpet lines (mostly improvised), and how all intertwine with the chord structures. The particular “sound” shows that it’s obviously music of the 80’s; that could be a minus for listeners wanting a more “contemporary” (or a more conventional!) jazz sound, but it’s worth a listen anyway.

Too much! Some don't like the use of the drum machine on it, but I say, listen to that soulful trumpet!
