------------------- All-Music Guide Album --------------------

In a Silent Way brought Miles Davis together with members of his brillant group of the '60s (Herbie Hancock/Wayne Shorter/Tony Williams) and emerging musical spirits (Chick Corea/Dave Holland/Joe Zawinul/John McLaughlin) who would launch Davis into the Bitches Brew era. On In a Silent Way, Davis was moving away from "tunes" while utilizing more electric instrumental coloring and rockish patterns and splicing to manufacture the music -- ideas which seemed to take hold a year after his stunning Plugged Nickel recordings. Here the music continued to show the distinct Davis use of suspension and space, but it was more amorphic and no longer seemed rooted in a clear, direct emotion, but was rather indirectly emotional in an illusive sense of reality. ~ Bob Rusch, Cadence(Cadence), All-Music Guide
