  • Filles de Kilimanjaro (named after Kilimanjaro African Coffee) is one of the many masterpieces recorded by American composer and trumpeter Miles Davis during his lifetime. It can be seen as a transitional album, right between his "acoustic" and "electric" periods. He recorded this incredible work of modern jazz together with musical greats such as Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea.

    The 5 songs on the album combine to form expressions of the same basic piece. The recording sessions made the musicians think and play differently. Such improvisations gave the listener a glimpse into the future of jazz in addition to musical enjoyment. Adventurous from start to finish and full of funky and bluesy rhythms. Miles Davis is among the most influential and celebrated musicians in the history of jazz.

    During his five-year career he went in different musical directions and was one of the pioneers of the jazz-rock / fusion sound. His highlights include the million-seller Kind of Blue (1959), Sketches of Spain (1960) and Bitches Brew (1970).
