This eight-CD set captures Miles Davis's second great quintet at its fiercest, loose with both the blossoming of familiarity between the players and the broadness of its attacks on the mostly well known tunes the group called during two nights at Chicago's Plugged Nickel in 1965. And you can hear it all, from "The Theme" that closed the quintet's sets to multiple, radically different takes of several tunes. Davis formed this band with just its heated potential in mind, opting for youth in Wayne Shorter's tenor sax, Herbie Hancock's piano, Ron Carter's bass, and, especially, Tony Williams's unlocked rhythmic energy.
Mongo returns – to the Fantasy label group, not the scene, from which he had never been missing in action. Yet in another sense, it is a return to the basic Mongo Santamaria Afro-Cuban-rooted sound and concept – with a few contemporary elements – that the ageless leader had been employing ever since he stopped trying to chase after hits. Marty Sheller continues to turn out the charts; in addition to three of his own tunes, he gratefully revives two unusual overlooked '70s gems, Stevie Wonder's "You've Got It Bad, Girl" and Marvin Gaye's "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You" in his old boogaloo manner.

Silver Sound is a German composer, musician and producer of electronic music Uwe Schmidt, most known as Atom Heart. He is often regarded as the father of electrolatino, electrogospel, and aciton music.
Best described as environmental lounge electro, Schmidt incorporates elements of exotica and jungle in these dense, exquisitely detailed tracks. Silver Sound also signals a shift in Schmidt's material toward a wilder, more schizophrenic approach to composition and a less derived overall sound.
