Get Up with It

Miles Davis


This 1974 double LP gathers up tracks from 1970 through 1974, recorded with variations on whatever band Davis was touring with at the time. The piece from 1970 rocks; the ones from 1972 are stark and alienating; the ones from 1973 and 1974 are pure acid funk; and the opener, “He Loved Him Madly,” a 32-minute tribute to the recently deceased Duke Ellington that takes the form of a funeral dirge beaming from the dark side of the moon, makes the set essential all on its own.
