Sorcerer is an album recorded in May 1967 by the Miles Davis quintet. It is the third of six albums that this quintet recorded. It also includes one track from a 1962 session with vocalist Bob Dorough, which was the first time Wayne Shorter recorded with Davis. Davis does not play on the second track, "Pee Wee". The album's cover is a profile photo of actress Cicely Tyson, who at the time was Davis's girlfriend (and many years later his wife).

Sorcerer, the third album by the second Miles Davis Quintet, is in a sense a transitional album, a quiet, subdued affair that rarely blows hot, choosing to explore cerebral tonal colorings. Even when the tempo picks up, as it does on the title track, there's little of the dense, manic energy on Miles Smiles - this is about subtle shadings, even when the compositions are as memorable as Tony Williams' "Pee Wee" or Herbie Hancock's "Sorcerer.

Miles Davis ‎– Sorcerer. Label: Columbia ‎– PC 9532. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue. ) Nothing Like You was recorded on 21st of august 1962 with a different group, except for Shorter and Davis himself. The sessions this track came from, never resulted in an album on its own. Eventually this one was added to Sorcerer. This was actually the very first time Shorter and Davis recorded together.

The only tune from the album known to have appeared in Davis's live performances is "Masqualero", written by Wayne Shorter Davis's groups performed it as late as April 1970; the last known version appears on the live album Black Beauty The tune has also been revived by Wayne Shorter by his quartet since the 90's.

Only for completionists (1%). My first introduction to Miled Davis's (or 'es?) music, as long as intro to classic prog jazz in album form (not just songs). And I came here, as to every new genre and thinks. Third Miles Davis' new Quintet album is a bit different from excellent second one. If even more off the his hard-bop roots, album contains relaxed but cool music. There is difficult to find such emotional musicianship as on previous work. Miles continues his experimentation, sound is much more complex there. And even being quite mid-tempo, album takes you outside of music played. Not energetic, but more expert musicianship.

MILES DAVIS - Sorcerer. Filed under Post Bop By MILES DAVIS.

Sorcerer shows the second Miles Davis Quintet continuing to push the envelope musically. While the tracks are not as memorable overall as those as on their previous release, Miles Smiles, the music on Sorcerer is more adventurous and the interplay is very impressive. Pee Wee" is another strong track that is soothing and contains some creative bass playing from Ron Carter  . This item arrived seemingly sealed.
