On the Corner is a studio album by American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Miles Davis. It was recorded in June and July 1972 and released on October 11 of the same year by Columbia Records. The album continued Davis's exploration of jazz fusion, bringing together funk rhythms with the influence of experimental composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and free jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman.

On The Corner - Sealed Miles Davis vinyl LP album record USA PC31906 COLUMBIA. As an attempt to mix commercial funk with jazz, On the Corner is a total failure, but the end result is something much better and more timeless than any of the other more commercial jazz/funk albums of that decade. This album is only remotely similar to Sly and James because Miles was still getting too much influence from Stockhausen, Sun Ra, psychedelic rock and the traditional music of Africa

Miles’ album plays through almost without a pause even though the tracks are separated by bands. The groove runs quickly across the band or else the music continues into and out of it, I simply can’t tell. In any case, the music is laid out there for you as an integral whole, not a series of individual compositions arbitrarily selected and juxtaposed. They fit, like the movement of a long, planned work, and Miles plays them in this manner as well. Throughout the album, there is extensive use of a variety of rhythmic sounds.

It is one of the 31 tracks in The Complete On the Corner Sessions, a six-disc box recorded between 1972 and 1975 that centers on the albums On the Corner, Get Up with It, and the hodgepodge leftovers collection Big Fun. It is also the final of eight boxes in the series of Columbia's studio sessions with Davis from the 1950s through 1975, when he retired from music before his return in the 1980s. Davis was not playing for popularity among a younger generation of fans - he was going for broke in changing his entire approach to composing and playing music. Those scribes who dismissed On the Corner as pop had obviously never listened to rock, because it sounded nothing like this.

Miles Davis' The Complete On The Corner Sessions, the eighth and final deluxe box set in the Grammy Award-winning Miles Davis Series, includes more than 6 hours of music - twelve previously unissued tracks plus five tracks previously unissued in full - covering sixteen sessions from On the Cornerm, Big Fun, and Get Up With i. But I have been listening to Miles Davis (all genres) for 30 years. I have always wondered exactly where On the Corner came from, . what is the basis? What is the premise? What were Miles' and his colleagues working for?

The music that trumpeter Miles Davis forged in the first half of the 1970s, his so-called "electric period," is not jazz. In a determined effort to keep his sound fresh, Davis took the audacious step of leaving behind all the frameworks of the art form which had made him a recognized figure throughout the world. The first is the material (recorded on June 1 and 6, 1972) that would be released as On The Corner-the extended grooves, as bassist Michael Henderson explains in the liner notes. Other tracks collected here are another matter. Following the two June 1972 sessions, Davis moved the ensemble sound away from an insistence on a churning, full-speed-ahead jam on one chord. Over the next few years, orchestral colors are explored and there's room for chord changes and melodies.
