about

The first full-length album by multinational jazz-noise collective Desert Island Dicks. Jointly released in 2007 by Britain's Amoebic Productions label and Australia's Glitch City.

The album consists of time-compressed versions of three well-known albums by American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, namely 1969's Bitches' Brew, 1959's Kind of Blue and 1960's Sketches of Spain. Each track on these albums is condensed from its original length to one of ninety seconds, thus compressing each one at a ratio relative to its original length.
