You've probably sworn several times to give jazz a shot and then found something better to do. Well, here's your chance to make good on that vow. Over three days in 1969, Miles Davis cranked out Bitches Brew, a swirling, clattering, stomping mess of music that became his first gold record. To commemorate its 40th anniversary, Sony Music/Legacy Recordings is releasing a box set with two vinyl re-pressings, a live DVD, and loads of memorabilia.
