The Complete On the Corner Sessions is a posthumous box set by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released in the US on September 25, 2007 by Columbia Records and in the UK on September 29 on Legacy Recordings. Like other Davis box sets, the included material is taken from a wider chronology of sessions than the dates which actually produced the titular album
How ahead of its time was the 1972 'On the Corner' album? After more than thirty years (at this writing) its influence is only beginning to be appreciated. These raw sessions put the achievement of the finished 'On the Corner' in a more positive light, not only illuminating an often maligned and misunderstood album, but also clarifying Davis' entire career trajectory post-'Bitches Brew'
On the Corner is a studio album by American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Miles Davis. It was recorded in June and July 1972 and released on October 11 of the same year by Columbia Records. The album continued Davis's exploration of jazz fusion, bringing together funk rhythms with the influence of experimental composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and free jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman.
Miles Davis Complete Recording Series – 8. Format: 6 CD, Compilation, Remastered Box Se. I think at least two discs could have been cut from this set, making it less expensive, and making for a lot less duplication in everyone's collection.
This is the ninth sumptuously produced multi-album box set of Miles Davis material taken from the trumpeter's 30-odd year association with the Columbia label. It will probably be the last. Few 20th-century artists have had their work subjected to such sustained scrutiny (while picking up eight posthumous Grammies in the process), and it says much for Davis's creative genius that he can still leave you wanting more.

The On The Corner sessions are filled with tales like this – baffledmusicians playing instruments they’d never touched before, over tracksthey couldn’t hear, making music that sounded like nothing on earth. On its release, jazz buffs hated the results. There were few solos and little harmonic development, with more attention being paid to texture and timbre. Yet it’s exactly those qualities that endeared the albumto subsequent fans of rock, dance and electronica.
The On the Corner sessions were recorded in June and September 1972. These sessions formed the basis for the 1972 album. On the Corner was scorned by critics at the time of its release and was one of Davis's worst-selling recordings. Its critical standing has improved dramatically with the passage of time; today it is seen as a strong forerunner of the musical techniques of hip hop, drum and bass, and electronic music.
