Miles Plugs In

Another chance to hear Craig Charles explore the extraordinary music that Miles produced in the period dubbed the "Electric Era" from 1969-75.

At the time poorly received, the records from this timeframe include Bitches Brew and On The Corner and represent the final creative flourish from one of the 20th Century's major musical figures.

The documentary includes newly sourced interview material from musicians who collaborated with Miles including Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin, Jack DeJohnette and Dave Liebman. It was first broadcast in August 2009, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Miles Davis' In A Silent Way.
