Miles Davis ~ “Guinnevere”

Complete Bitches Brew

During the time between Miles Davis’ ’68 Bitches Brew sessions and the Jack Johnson sessions in ’70, Miles entered the studio to record a take on CSN’s “Guinnevere.” Featured on the 1979 anthology Circle in the Round, and again on the Complete Bitches Brew Sessions, this cover finds Miles and company stretching the classic ballad out over an 18 minute electrified, fusion journey. The track features sitar master Ravi Shankar adding his signature Indian drone while Miles lays down unmistakable Bitches-era riffs atop.
