Great Expectations

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

A friend posted the cover to Miles Davis' 1974 album "Big Fun" as his Facebook profile pic and I kind of swoon over the album cover art. The colors, the proportion, the typography. Sick. Have you heard "Great Expectations"? The last 15 minutes of this track is like one streaming and gorgeous trek through India (well, the whole album is, really). A who's who in jazz basically appeared alongside Miles:
Mtume (Mtume, people!! Of "Juicy Fruit" fame), Herbie Hancock, Joe Zanwinul (!!), who helped write "Great Expectations", Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, Bernie Maupin, Lonny Smith...it goes on. You can find out more about who appears on the album here.
