This album (along with In a Silent Way, (also by Miles Davis)), marked the start of Fusion.
This album came as a response to the Columbia label, which suggested Miles cash in on the rock craze, due to the fact that his album sales were going fast downhill. Miles, who was used to inventing new jazz styles (for example cool jazz), went right on ahead being the pioneer that he was, and invented fusion. Columbia's policy was beaten, as Bitches Brew went on to be one of the best selling jazz albums of all time.
