Happy 50th Anniversary to Miles Davis - On The Corner

Today On the Corner from Miles Davis turns fifty. 

The last studio album of the seventies (and it was only 1972!) that Davis had a conceptual idea throughout executed. This was also his last major studio record that wasn't a mishmash of sessions, outside of his 80's comeback. For the rest of the decade Miles focused on live playing (which resulted in some of our favorite albums) until his health and drug use sidelined him. 

When RtBE wrote about Miles for our Masters series, On the Corner didn't receive a lot of love, but we dig this album and era of Miles more and more over the years, so we wanted to celebrate this records anniversary today. 

The best way to do that is get down to it, here are some tunes from 1972's On The Corner
