    Refried Vinyl (among other things): "Strange Fruit" by Billie Holiday

    Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit

    Billie Holiday /// Commodore Records

    Bitches Brew was a turning point in modern jazz. Davis had already spearheaded two major jazz movements – cool and modal jazz – and was about to initiate another major change (like Davis' album Filles de Kilimanjaro, the album's cover also sports the phrase "Directions In Music By Miles Davis" above the title). Some critics at the time characterized this music as simply obscure and "outside", which recalls Duke Ellington's description of Davis as "the Picasso of jazz."
