“Nefertiti” is the fourth album by American jazz musician and trumpet player, Miles Davis (trumpet) and his Second Great Quintet, featuring Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone), Herbie Hancock (piano), Ron Carter (double bass), and Tony Williams (drums).
Recorded in 1967. Released in 1968 by Columbia Records.
The last totally acoustic recording in Davis’ career. An artistic and impressionistic post-bop/modal jazz masterpiece.
The title track “Nefertiti” is an experimental recording, on which the horn section repeats the melody numerous times without individual solos while the rhythm section improvises underneath, reversing the traditional roles of the front line and rhythm section.
The remastered CD includes four alternative tracks.
