Miles Davis Bitches Brew

Bitches Brew is an album recorded by American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis in 1969 and released in 1970. It also the name of a piece included in this album.

Recorded over the course of three days (August 19–August 21, 1969), Bitches Brew incorporated electric instruments, such as electric piano and guitar, and mostly rejected traditional jazz rhythms in favor of a looser, rock-influenced improvisational style.
