After the success of the 4-CD deluxe box set the Complete Bitches Brew Sessions, Legacy has expanded and improved upon the original 2-LP set in several ways. This release features the same 20-bit digitally remixed and remastered sources from the box set, and also boasts one rare bonus track, "Feio" by Wayne Shorter. Both original and new liners are included in the package, as well as a booklet filled with rare and/or unpublished photos.


Thought by many to be among the most revolutionary albums in jazz history, Miles Davis' Bitches Brew solidified the genre known as jazz-rock fusion. Conceptually, Davis described Bitches Brew as "a novel without words" and "an incredible journey of pain, joy, sorrow, hate, passion, and love." The vast psychedelic expanses of warped echoes, liquid reverb, and tape loops confirm such ambitious contrasts of light and dark, fear and hope. The collective improvisation and interplay spawned a galaxy of melodies and grooves that were later spliced together by producer Ted Macero. Bitches Brew is so forward-thinking that it retains its freshness and mystery in the 21st century.
