Miles' second great quintet storms the bebop barricades on this 1965 live album, redefining jazz from the inside out by tilting the balance boldly towards modal and free playing without entirely abandoning structure. Davis and saxman Wayne Shorter blow like men possessed on the barn-burner "Agitation." Even Miles' cool-school standard "So What" erupts into an exploratory frenzy, with drummer Tony Williams' explosive interjections egging the frontline on. And the angular, minimalist tone of the ballad "Yesterdays" shows it's possible to slow down without easing up.

To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz from the mid-'40s to the early '90s, since he was in the thick of almost every important innovation and stylistic development in the...
