Agharta was reissued several times. In JanuaryColumbia re-released it in the U. It was made available in the U. He still found it somewhat low LP) bass, which he attributed to the original master tapes: "The LP version also didn't have a lot of bass, but I always assumed this was due to the LP cut: with long album lengths the grooves can hold less bass information. The Festival Hall concert itself had been received enthusiastically by the Osaka audience.
The LP's only appearance on a popular music chart was in April on the American Billboard chartwhere it spent five weeks and reached a peak position of Agharta was also largely unsuccessful with professional critics. Reviewing for The New York Times in AprilRobert Palmer said Agharta is marred by long stretches of "sloppy, one-chord jams", disjointed sounds, and a banal quality clearly rendered by the impeccable Japanese engineering.
He complained that Davis' use of the wah-wah pedal inhibits his ability to phrase notes and that the septet sounds poor "by rock standards", particularly Cosey, whose overamplified guitar "whines and rumbles like a noisy machine shop" and relegates Lucas to background riffs.
Jazz critic Ian Carr thought the album "suffers from a monotony of sound" that he attributed mostly to Lucas and Cosey's relentlessly eruptive guitar playing.
Alongside the band's intense rhythms, Davis' trumpet sounded fatigued, dejected, and out of place to Carr. In general, he deemed the music "too non- Western in the sense of too much rhythm and not enough structure". In Giddins' mind, the trumpeter "doesn't exploit the backbeat, he succumbs to it, and the LP) consequence is not the ensuing monotony, which theoretically a soloist could turn to his advantage.
Agharta received some positive contemporary reviews. Nathan Cobb from The Boston Globe appraised the record favorably incalling it "a kind of firestorm for the '70s" with a "positively cosmic" rhythmic foundation.
In conclusion, he regarded Davis as "the one who leads the others through the unknown waters of electronic jazz rock". He rated the album four stars, out of a possible five. He wrote in Phonograph Record that Davis' new music is the product of his heart's once luminous "emotional capacities" having been shattered by "great, perhaps unbearable suffering", but that "the soul beyond it" could never be destroyed and interestingly "almost glows uniquely brighter in its own dark coldness; and that, that which is all that is left, is merely the universe".
By the time of the second Osaka concert captured on Pangaeathe band's level of energy had diminished significantly, and Davis sounded particularly absent. As Mtume recounted, "he became ill in the evening, and you can hear the difference in the energy. Agharta underwent positive critical reassessment, beginning in when Davis returned to the jazz scene. He called it an "angry, dissociated, funky" record built on the septet's virtuosic performance, particularly Foster's "guileless show of chops" and Fortune's performance, which he deemed the best woodwind playing on a Davis album from this decade.
Considine contended that Agharta ' s "alternately audacious, poetic, hypnotic, and abrasive" music had endured the passage of time best. Although Davis' use of wah-wah was frequently dismissed in the past as a failed experiment, Richard Cook and Brian Morton believed the effects pedal had in fact helped Davis achieve remarkably adventurous playing on Agharta.
While possessing an "epic" sound and scope, Agharta is also "a great band record", in his opinion: "Even though Davis contributed only telling details, he still cued exceptional performances from his men.
He said that, because Davis gave the band leeway for constant interplay, the music exhibits an "organic and fluid quality" as well as a greater variety of textures, rhythms, timbres, and moods than Dark Magus. Back in the mids, fans who had formed emotional attachments to the moody soundscapes of Filles de Kilimanjaro and In a Silent Way had trouble adjusting to the electronic firestorms of Agharta. While Mr. Davis was being treated for two broken legs and a bone disease, a newer generation of listeners and musicians was inspired by the abrasive music his last band of the 70's had recorded.
Despite being one of Davis' lesser-known records, Agharta belonged to a period in his career that influenced artists in British jazznew waveand punk rockincluding guitarists Robert Quine and Tom Verlaine.

According to Nicholson, Agharta and other jazz-rock recordings such as Emergency! This development dwindled with the commercialism of jazz in the salthough Agharta remained a pivotal and influential record through the s, especially on artists in the experimental rock genre. Kirkwho recalled playing it often while working at Chris Watson 's loft during their early years in the band Cabaret Voltaire. Incomposer and bandleader David Sanford completed his dissertation on Agharta as a doctoral student in composition at Princeton University.
In it, he argued that the album demonstrated how jazz has utilized a variety of external influences "to evolve or modernize itself".
In an interview several years later, Sanford said it was an important work that had gone to the "fringes of jazz" and a place most other music has not explored since. Information is taken from the liner notes for each edition.

Gandhi replied "Miles from India," and nearly a year later Belden delivered this brilliant set that not only features a number of India's finest musicians but a veritable who's who of Miles' own sidemen. In perhaps the boldest move, Belden and the musicians looked well beyond Miles' sessions with Indian instruments for inspiration, performing tracks from the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s the same time span covered by Miles' associates on this album.
Another fun thing about these performances is that some of Miles' sidemen play on songs they didn't originally play on -- like the opener, "Spanish Key," featuring Mike Stern and Dave Liebman.
But despite some additional Indian percussion and vocalizing, "Spanish Key" doesn't vary much from the original. On the other hand, "All Blues" is completely transformed, with Ravi Chary's sitar taking the place of Miles' trumpet.
The fast version of "Ife" marks the entrance of monster bass player Michael Henderson and the wonderfully deranged guitar of Pete Cosey, who does not record nearly enough. Stern gets to reprise his role on the classic "Jean Pierre," paired with some great flute from Rakesh Chaurasia.
Chick LP) appears only on "So What," but turns in a great piano solo with some tasty inside-the-piano work. Like "All Blues," "So What" becomes something else again with the addition of a trio of Indian percussionists and a change in time signature. And while the bassline of "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down" doesn't really lend itself to Henderson's signature propulsive style, the percussionists lock in with him, providing a platform for more sick playing from Cosey. Here, Mike Stern's solo is as gentle as what is soul - Various - Formidable Rhythm N Blues (Vol 1) (Vinyl one on "Jean Pierre" was noisy.
Henderson and drummer Vince Wilburn kick it on "Great Expectations," which segues briefly into the introspective "Orange Lady" and back. Chary and Roney both contribute excellent solos and Cosey goes nuts why doesn't he record more? Fortunately, he gets plenty more space on the slow version of "Ife," both soloing and comping.
The rhythm section of Henderson and Badal Roy on tabla is completely hypnotic here, providing a perfect base for languid solos from Dave Liebman and Gary Bartz and some nice spacy sounds from Cosey and Adam Holzman. Scored for voice, piano, guitar, and the electric mandolin of U. Srinivas, it's a pensive and atmospheric track that nevertheless features some passionate soloing. And that's merely touching on some of the highlights.
The essence of jazz is improvisation and expression, and Miles always sought out highly individual players.
