Miles Davis ‎- Nefertiti

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Nefertiti is the fourth album by Miles Davis‘ second classic quintet , released in March 1968. Recorded on June 7, June 22–23 and July 19, 1967, at Columbia’s 30th Street Studio, the album was Davis’ last fully acoustic album. Davis himself did not contribute any compositions, which were mostly written by Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter.

“Perhaps Nefertiti’s charms are a little more subtle than those of its predecessors, but that makes it intriguing. Besides, this album so clearly points the way to fusion, while remaining acoustic, that it may force listeners on either side of the fence into another direction.” – Stephen Thomas Erlewine/AllMusic.
