Later on in the track there are several micro-edits: Once in the recording studio, the players were typically given only a few instructions: Bitches Brew also pioneered the application of the studio as a musical instrument, featuring stacks of edits and studio effects that were an integral part of the music.
The technology of recording, analog tape, disc mastering and inherent recording time constraints had, by the late sixties, expanded beyond previous limitations and sonic range for the stereo, vinyl album and Bitches Brew reflects this.
The title track contains 15 edits, again with several short tape loops of, in this case, five seconds at 3: Dave Holland  Though Bitches Brew was in many ways revolutionary, perhaps its most important innovation was rhythmic.
A few pieces on Bitches Brew were rehearsed before the recording sessions, but at other times the musicians had little or no idea what they were to record.
Therefore, Bitches Brew not only became a controversial classic of musical innovation, it also became renowned for its pioneering use of studio technology. His use of such a large rhythm section offers the soloists wide but active expanses for their solos.
There were many special effects, like tape loops, tape delays, reverb chambers and echo effects. The musical result flows from basic rock patterns to hard bop textures, and at times, even passages that are more characteristic of free jazz.
Davis did not perform on the short piece "John McLaughlin". In it are found long-form performances which encompass entire improvised suites with rubato sections, tempo changes or the long, slow crescendo more common to a symphonic orchestral piece or Indian raga form than the three-minute rock song.
Post-production[ edit ] Significant editing was made to the recorded music. Through intensive tape editing, Macero concocted many totally new musical structures that were later imitated by the band in live concerts. The rhythm section for this recording consists of two bassists one playing bass guitarthe other double basstwo to three drummerstwo to three electric piano players, and a percussionistall playing at the same time.
Short sections were spliced together to create longer pieces, and various effects were applied to the recordings. The latter had been recorded as a fairly straightforward ballad early inbut was given a radically different interpretation on Bitches Brew.
His closing solo on "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down" is particularly noteworthy in this regard.
The issued "Sanctuary" is actually two consecutive takes of the piece. Davis called the musicians to the recording studio at very short notice.
