31) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Miles Davis-'Bitches Brew'
Back in 1991, when I first started at this station,
KRTU was mostly Classical programming with some Jazz thrown in during
the night time hours. I was always "breaking the rules" as it
were, and kept trying to throw in dance or rock music whenever I could
during these "Jazz hours". (Hey, rock music is what I grew up
with.) Then one night at KRTU, I found the album 'Bitches Brew' by Miles
Davis. Things began to change. Little did I know at the time, I quoted
what many people said back when this album was released, "This is
Jazz?" A lot of people didn't consider this album true Jazz when
it was released in 1970, and some had thought that Miles had sold out
to the rock world. I wasn't born when this record was recorded, but rest
assured when I first heard it, I was stunned by the instrumentation. I
had already been discovering the beauty of good Classical pieces, and
with Miles Davis, I had begun to find Jazz just as wonderful as the rock
music I had always heard. It began to be more and more apparent, different
genres were no longer what I seeked, it was only good music that I wanted.
I never looked back. Then in 1999, KRTU starting programming more Jazz
and left the overnight hours for people like me to come in and play whatever
the hell felt right. Thus, "Music For Listeners" was born. I'm
glad this station still strives to play good music of any genre. It is
because of this station, that not only have I grown to love great Jazz,
but many different genres of music that I would just consider "good
music". Played on the last day of the old studio. After this show,
the room that I learned about the music of Chopin, Miles Davis, and Aphex
Twin would no longer look the same. Also played as the "unofficial"
start to the KRTU Miles Davis Birthday Broadcast. Our first Jazz recording
as a "Mid-Morning Recording" is a stunner and a classic, in
any genre or format.
Happy Birthday Miles...your music still lives on!!!
