Miles Davis SORCERER Vinyl Record - Limited Edition, 180 Gram Pressing
1967 Post-Bop Classic the Third of Five Albums from Miles' Prized Second Quintet Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Sorcerer Has Never Sounded More Dynamic, Present, Warm, or Tonally Rich Mood, Inflection, and Nuance Take Center Stage on Compositions Steeped in Sophisticated Expressionism a Dozen Five-Star Miles Davis Albums Spanning 1958-1971 Available from Mobile Fidelity on Definitive-Sounding LP: Get All 12 Filled with aural magic and enchanting musical spells, Sorcerer is true to it's name. The third of five albums devised by Miles Davis' legendary second quintet - and the second record in a still-unprecedented string of eight consecutive releases within a four-year period that forever changed the face of jazz - the 1967 magnum opus mesmerizes with instrumental colors, subdued musings, and subtle details. These crucial characteristics blossom with vibrant realism on Mobile Fidelity's definitive 45RPM pressing. Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g 45RM vinyl at RTI, this collectable audiophile edition of Sorcerer joins the ranks of eleven other essential Davis records given supreme sonic and packaging treatment by Mobile Fidelity. Longtime listeners will immediately recognize a wealth of information and depth of tonality unavailable on prior versions. The myriad shadings, interwoven textures, and relaxed nuances that tie the post-bop set's warm compositions together are rendered with utmost realism. This is a reference-standard reissue. You'll hear poetic lyricism pouring out of Wayne Shorter's horn, the breadth and definition of the notes spreading across an enormous soundstage. Never before have drummer Tony Williams' rim shots ricocheted with such purpose or his light percussive work mirrored that of a feather touching skin. Similarly, Herbie Hancock's piano runs now occupy their own space, where their relationship to the central rhythms and front line becomes clearer. Prizing inflection and nuance more so than heady solos or uptempo flights, Sorcerer mesmerizes with cerebal properties and cascades of emotional interplay. Such beauty emerges in the mellow ballad "Pee Wee," an indeible statement of restrained authority and sophisticated expression. The swirling title track unfolds as jazz shadow play, Hancock, Shorter, and Williams mirroring one another's moves with guile and purpose. The opening "Prince of Darkness" showcases the ensemble's reach and communication, every musician going in seemingly different directions yet ending up on the same page. A lasting example of Davis' visionary insight, Sorcerer is comprised entirely of pieces written by his band mates. Indeed, save for the closing "Nothing Like You" - a brief tribute to Davis' eventual wife, who also graces the cover, recorded in 1962 and adorned with vocals from Bob Dorough the album represents a further maturation and refinement of a quintet that stands as one of the finest in jazz history. Mobile Fidelity is proud to give the record the treatment it's long deserved.
