One of the great underrated Miles albums, Get Up With It pushes forward with the full force, sophistication, groove, and beautiful chaos of Miles’ electrified wah-wah trumpet and organ. The sweetness of In A Silent Way and Kind of Blue may be gone from Miles’ music during this period (he suffered lasting injuries from a car crash in 1972), but left in its place was a wild, drug-fueled creativity that broke apart the very foundations of jazz. Miles would fall into a dark depression not long after the album was released… For a deep dive into the album, we highly recommend checking out our friend Andy Beta’s writeup on Pitchfork.
