Ted Macero - R.I.P.

I own only a dozen Miles Davis records so I'm wet behind the ears, but it's impossible to listen to the devastating segue from "It's About That Time" to In a Silent Way's title track without concluding that the man behind the boards understood, perhaps better than the creator himself (at the time, anyway; Davis' seventies records suggest he learned plenty), how violence taints even the quietest moments.
