Along with its sister recording, Pangaea, Agharta was recorded live in February of 1975 at the Osaka Festival Hall in Japan. Amazingly enough, given that these are arguably Davis' two greatest electric live records, they were recorded the same day. Agharta was performed in the afternoon and Pangaea in the evening. Of the two, Agharta is superior

Agharta Sony Music Canada Inc. 2015. Miles Davis sold himself like a brazen 'strumpet with trumpet' to get into bed with rock and even tried to shoehorn his way onto PIL's Album album, under the flimsy pretext that Johnny's voice sounded like his own horn? Lydon flatly rejected his contributions. From here it is but a short slap to the horrors of jazz funk followed by a short button press to the digital technology that begat Detroit Techno and call the lineage facile if you like, Rap.

In Japan, Miles nonetheless was greeted enthusiastically during a three-week tour that included Osaka, where Sony technicians awaited him to record the two concerts of February 1, 1975. The first was released on the double album Agharta. The music has a radiance and an edginess that stretches out over long sections, practically without any reference points other than the abrupt pauses characteristic of the on-off method. An unexpected shuffle rhythm, in the style of the Chicago Blues, appears in the middle of Interlude, preceding the psychedelic finale in which the music unravels slowly. Miles Davis (tpt, org); Sonny Fortune (as, ss, fl); Pete Cosey (el-g, synth, perc); Reggie Lucas (el-g); Michael Henderson (el-b); Al Foster (d); Mtume (perc). Recorded live at Osaka Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan on February 1, 1975.

In Agharta we find Miles Davis further exploring the possibilities of Funk music, only this time fusing it with the aggressive rock-stylings of Bitches Brew and the atmospheric nuances of In A Silent Way. In the opening number, "Prelude", we see the musicians taking apart genres and rebuilding them into a completely different sound. This piece is much more reminiscent of Rock than Jazz, as the music is produced by a prominent guitar-driven sound. Prelude" is all Miles Davis and Pete Cosey, who flow in and out of perception with eruptions of frantic solos. I highly recommend this album to any fans of Miles Davis, it highly differs from the atmospheric sound of his previous electric albums, as it contains a more elevated and aggressive style that will be sure to please any fan of Jazz Fusion.

Agharta was recorded on the afternoon in 1975, at one of two concerts Miles Davis performed at the Osaka Festival Hall in Japan.
