Live in Birdland! This is a good recording of a great show! (may actually be a complilation of several shows) It's really fun to hear the announcments of the next number that are apparently for radio audience. The sound quality is quite good considering the year (1952-3) and the band really swings during classics like 'Lullaby of Birdland', 'Stella by Starlight' and 'How High the Moon'.
A 3CD box set collection chronicling Miles’ musical evolution in the studio from 1966-1968 working with his “second great quintet,” the latest edition in Columbia/Legacy’s acclaimed Miles Davis Bootleg Series provides an unprecedented look into the artist’s creative process, drawing on full session reels including all rehearsals, partial and alternate takes, extensive and fascinating studio conversation and more. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Miles Smiles, the groundbreaking second studio album from the Miles Davis Quintet–Miles Davis (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone), Herbie Hancock (piano), Ron Carter (bass) and Tony Williams (drums)–this definitive new collection includes the master takes of performances which would appear on the Miles Smiles (1967), Nefertiti (1968) and Water Babies (recorded 1967, released 1976) albums alongside more than two hours worth of previously unreleased studio recordings from original sessions produced by Teo Macero (with the exception of “Fall,” produced by Howard A. Roberts).
Five CD collection from the Jazz great. In 1985, Miles Davis shocked the music world by moving from Columbia to Warner Brothers. He immediately started working on an album called Perfect Way after a tune by Scritti Politti, later renamed Tutu. When Tutu was released in 1986, it re-ignited Miles Davis' career, crossing over into the Rock and Pop markets and winning Davis two Grammy Awards - the album was a key factor in raising Davis' status to an international superstar. This box set includes the Warner Bros studio albums Tutu, Amandla and Doo-Bop, the Dingo and Siesta soundtracks and live recordings with Quincy Jones and the likes of Kenny Garrett, Foley and Adam Holzman. The set also includes four previously unreleased tracks, from the Rubberband Sessions. The liner notes were provided by leading Jazz critic Ashley Kahn.
