Montée X-mas calendar #4 – Miles Davis: “Go Ahead John”

Number four.
”Big Fun” didn’t receive too much praise when it was released in 1974, but it’s a great record consisting of beautiful percussive and electric stuff recorded between 1969-1972. On this 28(!) minute track, guitarplayer John McLaughlin was given full freedom (hence the title). But notice the drums – panned between different takes throughout the song.

Pretty genius (it’s divided in 3 parts though, Youtube-wise):
