On the cover, Cicely Tyson, Miles’ new muse. On stage, the quintet’s pieces now flowed into one another without interruption, and the compositions recorded in the studio replaced the old standards. A new repertory developed during their three studio dates in May 1967; nearly all were written by Wayne Shorter, with the exception of Tony Williams’ “Pee Wee” (on which Miles did not play) and Hancock’s “The Sorcerer,” dedicated to Miles the sorcerer (Wayne Shorter’s title “Prince Of Darkness” having become the trumpeter’s nickname). The melodies were madly enigmatic. While great liberty was taken with the forms and the risks ran high, the group was extremely relaxed up until the chase between Shorter’s smooth saxophone and Miles’ elastic trumpet in “The Sorcerer.”
