Water Babies is a compilation album by American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. It compiled music Davis recorded in studio sessions with his quintet in 1967 and 1968, including outtakes from his 1968 album Nefertiti and recordings that foreshadowed his direction on In a Silent Way (1969), while covering styles such as jazz fusion and post-bop. Water Babies was released by Columbia Records in 1976 after Davis had (temporarily) retired.

Water Babies November 1976. In 1976, when Miles’ withdrawal from the scene seemed to go on forever, Columbia released an album bringing together two different periods on each side of a single LP. Side A featured three sublime pieces composed by Wayne Shorter in the spring of 1967. The opening waltz inspired each member of the quintet to such heights that one doesn’t know who to listen to first-even if the major part was nothing but a concerto grosso of cymbals that accompanied the improbable score of nuances modulating the regular beat of the Charleston cymbal. November 11, 1968 (d) Miles Davis (tpt); Wayne Shorter (ts); Chick Corea (el-p); Herbie Hancock (el-p); Dave Holland (b); Tony Williams (d). November 12, 1968 (e) Same personnel as November 11. All tracks recorded at Columbia 30th Street.
LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Miles Davis Format: Vinyl. At the time of its release, Miles was not recording and Columbia was wanting material for an album. So what came out of the situation was Water Babies, a collection of tracks recorded in the late 1960's, but kept in the company vault until 1976. Needless to say the release was highly controversial when the it came out. Miles was never an artist to look back on his work, hence the "new" release of "older" material reportedly made him very angry with the people he dealt with at Columbia.
