Just like Bob Dylan before him, Miles Davis challenged the boundaries of an entire genre of music by going "electric" on his groundbreaking 1969 album BITCHES BREW. Expanding upon Miles' previous experiments in jazz fusion, BITCHES BREW blended improvisational rock and jazz into an exciting new style that was highly controversial upon its release, but has since made the album one of the most influential records of all time. MILES ELECTRIC: A DIFFERENT KIND OF BLUE finds the jazz trumpeter performing BITCHES BREW live in concert at the legendary 1970 music festival Isle of Wight. Performance footage is interspersed with interviewed appearances by Miles' former band members Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, as well as admirers such as Carlos Santana and Joni Mitchell.
