Miles Davis – In a Silent Way lp

Although previous Davis records and live performances had already begun the shift to jazz fusion, In A Silent Way featured a full-blown electric approach. For this and other reasons, it is usually regarded as the first of his fusion recordings. The album lineup includes Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, Tony Williams and the virtuoso guitarist and newcomer John McLaughlin (future leader of the Mahavishnu Orchestra), introduced to Davis by Williams only the night before the recording session.
