USA, 1972, jazz fusion / jazz-funk

Miles DavisOn the Corner: I have no problem with this album. As a matter of fact, I love it. I never read reviews, either of new or old albums, so I never know the meta before going into an album. I just trust my ears. And so I’ll like something that’s panned or hate something that’s acclaimed. But the other day I ran across someone online talking about the critical re-evaluation of this album. Wait what? Critics thought this album was bad? What the hell! Is an artist not allowed to do new things, to stand on the corner and listen to the music of the street and then incorporate that music into his own? Now you know why I don’t read reviews. By the way, if you need further enticement, this has McLaughlin on guitar, Hancock on piano, and DeJohnette on drums.
