David Miles: Kind of Brown


On this classic record, David Miles' mainstream breakthrough that reached over sixteen fans, the musician found his voice through what he called "octavated breathing," producing a sludge-like tone that could only be termed "brown." This new shade of tonal color caused a slight depression in all who listened to it and has been the cause of several mishaps involving excessive alcohol consumption and one incident of self-inflicted eardrum stabbing. Kind of Brown pre-dates Miles' electric period, when he connected his trumpet to a microphone while in the bathtub, thus electrocuting himself. The recorded result, Bathtub Brew, is considered avant-garde by some and by at least one critic as the "aural equivalent of a sadistic colon cleansing."
