Miles, growing enamored with the sound of the electric guitar, recruits George Benson to record with his band. He had tried integrating guitarist Joe Beck into the group sound the month before but was unhappy with the results. While “Paraphernalia”—from his album Miles In The Sky—is the only track released at first from his sessions with Benson, it marks a turning point in Miles’ musical approach. Within a year, he recruits John McLaughlin to record with the band. Starting with In A Silent Way in 1969, most of Miles’ recordings and touring bands include at least one electric guitarist, sometimes two.
