Listening to Miles Davis' originally released version of In a Silent Way in light of the complete sessions released by Sony in 2001 (Columbia Legacy 65362) reveals just how strategic and dramatic a studio construction it was. If one listens to Joe Zawinul's original version of "In a Silent Way," it comes across as almost a folk song with a very pronounced melody. The version Miles Davis and Teo Macero assembled from the recording session in July of 1968 is anything but. There is no melody, not even a melodic frame

In a Silent Way. Miles Davis. Released July 30, 1969. In A Silent Way is Davis' less acclaimed jazz-rock fusion counterpart to Bitches Brew. The album abandons the smooth sound of swing and vintage jazz sounds for an atmospheric, space themed tone. It’s known as the beginning of the electronic era for Miles, and his change in approach would influence jazz for decades to come. Although rock enthusiasts at first criticized the use of the genre, the album would later be regarded warmly by critics. In A Silent Way is split into four pieces and two tracks, each one transitioning as a different live piece

Miles Davis's famous mid-1960s quintet, featuring saxophonist Wayne Shorter and pianist Herbie Hancock, was intact until just a few weeks before his new, electric ensemble recorded In a Silent Way. Legendary as a kind of line in the sand challenging jazz fans during the ascendance of electric, psychedelic rock, In a Silent Way hinted at the repetitive polyrhythms Davis would employ throughout the early 1970s. It also partook generously of electric piano and bass and rekindled the tonal palette that Davis had explored famously with Kind of Blue. 11 people found this helpful.

Miles Davis had been experimenting with electric instruments since 1967, but In a Silent Way truly kicks off his fusion period. One of the first jazz albums to feature extensive overdubbing and tape manipulation, it features two side-long suites created by producer Teo Macero, which layer various improvisations by Davis and his sidemen. Shhh/Peaceful" gives organist Joe Zawinul and electric guitarist John McLaughlin plenty of room to stretch out over heartbeat bass and shimmering hi-hat, while the title track coalesces into a sultry Latinesque groove.

Miles has always gone his own way, a musician of strength and dignity who has never made the compromise (so poisonous to jazz now) with pop fads. Side two opens and closes with the best song on the album, a timeless trumpet prayer called In a Silent Way. There has always been something eternal and pure in Miles’ music, and this piece captures that quality as well as anything he’s ever recorded. If, as I believe, Miles is an artist for the ages, then this piece will be among those that stand through those vast tracks of time to remind future generations of the oneness of human experience.

Like Bitches Brew, this record is a relatively dark one. There are no instantly recognisable melodies or riffs. Instead, In A Silent Way revolves around layers of sound. Organs, drums and bass provide the bottom of the sound, while other instruments fill the sound out until they are soloing.
