Filles de Kilimanjaro (French for "Girls of Kilimanjaro") is a studio album by American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. It was recorded in June and September 1968. The album was released in the United Kingdom by Columbia (CBS) in 1968 and in the United States in February 1969. The album is a transitional work for Davis, who was shifting stylistically from acoustic recordings with his second "great" quintet to his "electric" period

Since it's billed as "Directions in Music by Miles Davis," it should come as little surprise that Filles de Kilimanjaro is the beginning of a new phase for Miles, the place that he begins to dive headfirst into jazz-rock fusion.

Filles De Kilimanjaro February 5, 1969. A photo of 23-year-old Betty Mabry, the future Mrs. Davis, appears on the cover. This young woman, who was at the center of the hip black scene, introduced Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix to Miles and taught him how to dress in something other than a tailored suit. The the turning point signaled in Miles In The Sky- continued to compose almost all the pieces in his repertory. Gil Evans, however, had returned to the studio after Miles In The Sky and added some ideas of his own: for example, he signed the reprise of Petits Machins, renaming it Eleven

Filles De Kilimanjaro. FdK is a great album, a & masterpiece of improvisation introducing rhythms from rock and soul into the jazz groove and featuring some superb playing from Miles. Less well known than some of Miles' bigger selling albums like KoB and BB, it's nevertheless outstanding and IMO should be in every jazz collection. One person found this helpful.
