I just joined this list, so I don't know whether this was already discussed: Macero's production work with Miles is well worth checking out--his editing and post-production effects attracted considerable negative attention from the late '60's and early '70's jazz press and from the jazz musicians of that period. Both Miles and Macero were very interested in Stockhausen, Partch, and Cage at the time, but even those jazz people who had rightfully considered jazz to historically have been at the forefront of the avant garde were offended by what they saw as the "artifice" of tape manipulation, thus showing the latent conservatism of thought regarding the "traditional" elements of jazz: i.e, the authenticity of the "live" performance. Of course, we can see that it was hypocritical of the jazzers to descry the elevation of the engineer/producer and the "artifice" of manipulation while accepting the disembodied/time-traveling aspect of sound recording as being somehow more "natural." Gotta go. --MHL.
