Water Babies

Unlike Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man and Louie Armstrong, you don't need to smoke marijuana to fall between the spaces of the Miles Davis Quartet, to hear the different levels and layers in the music overlap and play with each other, and get lost in the dark rhythms of  the bass and drums, only to snap back to the present with the sound of the horns and the piano.

But it helps.

Here's Two Faced, a Wayne Shorter composition, recorded in 1968 with Miles on trumpet, Shorter on tenor saxophone, Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Dave Holland on bass, and Tony Williams on drums
