Miles in the Sky is a studio album by American trumpeter and composer Miles Davis, released on July 22, 1968, by Columbia Records. Miles in the Sky was produced by Teo Macero and recorded at Columbia Studio B in New York City on January 16, 1968, and May 15–17, 1968. For the album, Davis played with tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, drummer Tony Williams, and bassist Ron Carter. Guitarist George Benson made a guest appearance on the song "Paraphernalia"

With the 1968 album Miles in the Sky, Miles Davis explicitly pushed his second great quintet away from conventional jazz, pushing them toward the jazz-rock hybrid that would later become known as fusion. Here, the music is still in its formative stages, and it's a little more earth-bound than you might expect, especially following on the heels of the shape-shifting, elusive Nefertiti

The following is printed on the inner label of the LP record: <-"360 SOUND" STEREO "360 SOUND"- (in white lettering, located at the bottom of the inner label on the record). Matrix, Runout (Side A Label): XSM 135818.

The album was entitled Miles In The Sky, with a nod to the Beatles’ song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. Original issue: Columbia LP CS 9628 on July 22, 1968 Producer: Teo Macero Engineer: Frank Laico.

Guitarist George Benson made a guest appearance on the song "Paraphernalia". The album's title was a nod to the Beatles' 1967 song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

This is the first Miles Davis album to showcase anything resembling jazz-rock. This is the Second Great Quintet, augmented with George Benson on guitar for Paraphernalia. This album has such a great lineup with Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, and Ron Carter. Hancock is using electric piano for (from what i know) the first time, and Ron Carter using an electric jazz bass. Tony Williams, who was probably the catalyst for Miles going into the jazz-rock direction, utilizing rock beats during certain moments on this album. MILES IN THE SKY often makes me nod my head in indifference. Coming from Miles Davis, a man whom I respect for making jazz inviting and fun, this album is a head-scratcher.
