Seven Steps to Heaven finds Miles Davis standing yet again on the fault line between stylistic epochs. In earlypianist Wynton Kellybassist Love Letters In The Sand - Various - Those Wonderful Years Chambersand drummer Jimmy Cobb left to form their own trio, and Davis was forced to form a new band, which included Memphis tenor player George Coleman and bassist Ron Carter.
When Davis next entered the studio in Hollywood, he added local drummer Frank Butler and British studio ace Victor Feldmanwho ultimately decided not to go on the road with Davis. It's easy to see why Davis liked Feldman So Far - Miles Davis - Seven Steps To Heavenwho contributed the dancing title tune and "Joshua" to the session.
On three mellifluous standards -- particularly a cerebral "Basin Street Blues" and a broken-hearted "I Fall in Love Too Easily" -- the pianist plays with an elegant, refined touch, and the kind of rarefied voicings that suggest Ahmad Jamal. Davis responds with some of his most introspective, romantic ballad playing. On Freedom Jazz Dance - Brian Augers Oblivion Express - Second Wind title tune you can already hear the difference, as his crisp, driving cymbal beat and jittery, aggressive syncopations propel Davis into the upper reaches of his horn.
On "So Near, So Far" the drummer combines with Carter and new pianist Herbie Hancock to expand on a light Afro-Cuban beat with a series of telepathic changes in tempo, texture, and dynamics.
