Reseña de álbum

ESP marks the beginning of a revitalization for Miles Davis, as his second classic quintet — saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams — gels, establishing what would become their signature adventurous hard bop. Miles had been moving toward this direction in the two years preceding the release of ESP and he had recorded with everyone outside of Shorter prior to this record, but his addition galvanizes the group, pushing them toward music that was recognizably bop but as adventurous as jazz's avant-garde. Outwardly, this music doesn't take as many risks as Coltrane or Ornette Coleman's recordings of the mid-'60s, but by borrowing some of the same theories — a de-emphasis of composition in favor of sheer improvisation, elastic definitions of tonality — they created a unique sound that came to define the very sound of modern jazz. Certainly, many musicians have returned to this group for inspiration, but their recordings remain fresh, because they exist at this fine dividing line between standard bop and avant. On ESP, they tilt a bit toward conventional hard bop (something that's apparent toward the end of the record), largely because this is their first effort, but the fact is, this difference between this album and hard bop from the early '60s is remarkable. This is exploratory music, whether it's rushing by in a flurry of notes or elegantly reclining in Hancock's calm yet complex chords. The compositions are brilliantly structured as well, encouraging such free-form exploration with their elliptical yet memorable themes. This quintet may have cut more adventurous records, but ESP remains one of their very best albums.

50 stars for the record, but...

This is miscategorized as a "sextet" ? In fact, the iTunes library of Miles' music is getting weird. Reviews are deleted, records come in and out, etc. Can we get this fixed please?

E.S.P. -meaning I know you will love it!

This group made so many great albums, it's hard to pick out what's best. If you are looking for a taste of this album, I would strongly recommend either the title cut, or "Eighthy-one"

The 2nd Great Miles Quintet!

Herbie Hancock , Wayne Shorter , Ron Carter , and Tony Davis would outlast any of Miles' groups and this was the first studio recording with the quintet.
On top of being the most groundbreaking jazz musician in history...Miles Davis will always be remembered for the amazing artwork/album covers that accompanied every album.
E.S.P. was no acception. This cover photo was shot during a candid moment between Miles and his then wife Francis Bean. She is featured on several of his album covers.
Photographer Bob Cato is responsible for this brilliant cover art.

A través de una carrera profesional de 50 años, Miles Davis tocó la trompeta con un estilo lírico, introspectivo y melódico, a menudo con una sordina Harmon para que su sonido fuera más personal e íntimo. Si bien su visión del instrumento fue siempre constante, su visión del jazz fue asombrosamente versátil. Examinar su carrera es examinar la historia del jazz desde mediados de los 40 hasta principios de los 90, porque estuvo en el centro de casi todas las innovaciones importantes y los desarrollos...
