Miles Davis: Filles de Kilimanjaro (MFSL 2xLP)
2*Vinyl 180g, 45RPM, Limited Ed., Numbered, Remastered
Miles Davis – Filles De Kilimanjaro
Miles Davis’ move into full-on fusion starts here. Abandoning his bebop roots and chasing electric dreams, rock-based rhythms, and ostinato pulses, the icon gives life to new music forms on Filles de Kilimanjaro, a titanic release prized for its historical significance and lasting beauty. Grounded and focused, the five compositions unfold like a unified suite. Such peak lyricism, flourishes, and phrases are experienced in the highest-possible fidelity on Mobile Fidelity’s 45RPM 2LP set.
Filles de Kilimanjaro also represents a jumping-off point for Davis’ lineup. For the September sessions, Chick Corea replaced Herbie Hancock while Dave Holland relieved Ron Carter. The new additions speak a different albeit common language, fitting in with Davis’ desire to draw from rock and weave funk into open-minded excursions filled with exoticism, soulfulness, and wonder.
