Bitch's Brew album cover
Bitch's Brew

Bitch's Brew, released in early 1970, marked a milestone in the multi faceted career of one Miles Davis. It likewise spoke to an entire generation of "fusion" listeners and creative musicians. From it's two disc 94 minute mix evolved many strange, intoxicating, and innovative brews. The set was so original that it will never be duplicated. Nor should it. But this album contributed much to the future of Fusion. For artists from numerous genres were driven to creative heights in attempting to reproduce the spiritual essense, intensity, and improvisational forces evoked by it's content. It is with this same spirit that I name this page Bitch's Brew.
