LIVE IN EUROPE 1969 THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 2

Biography

What is cool? At its very essence, cool is all about what’s happening next. In popular culture, what’s happening next is a kaleidoscope encompassing past, present and future: that which is about to happen may be cool, and that which happened in the distant past may also be cool. This timeless quality, when it applies to music, allows minimalist debate – with few ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

Editorial Reviews

In the 1960s Miles Davis toured Europe several times with some of the greatest bands he ever led. As the first title in a projected series of boxed sets Sony/Legacy introduces MILES DAVIS QUINTET - Live In Europe 1967 - The Bootleg Series Vol.1 featuring Miles Davis Second Great Quintet featuring WAYNE SHORTER, HERBIE HANCOCK, RON CARTER and TONY WILLIAMS -- arguably the single greatest small group ensemble in jazz history.

The recordings from their 1967 European tour are some of the only existing documentation of the band performing compositions from the extraordinary series of studio albums they made between 1965-1967 -- E.S.P., Miles Smiles, Sorcerer and Nefertiti. Now fans can hear live versions of Agitation (from E.S.P.), Footprints" and "Gingerbread Boy ( from Miles Smiles), Masquelero" (from Sorcerer ) and Riot" (from Nefertiti); PLUS, Miles revisits some of the earlier classics he had been performing for years -- Round Midnight , On Green Dolphin Street , I Fall In Love Too Easily and No Blues -- all in strikingly different interpretations from the original studio versions. Seeing this band in action only further emphasizes their near supernatural rapport!

DVD Track listing:1. Agitation, 2. Footprints, 3. I Fall In Love Too Easily, 4. Walkin , 5. Gingerbread Boy, 6. The Theme, 7. Agitation, 8. Footprints
9. Round Midnight, 10. Gingerbread Boy, 11. The Theme

Customer Reviews

Great sound from a greet period of Miles Davis music.
Scottie B
This band played so intuitively-both as a group and individually, that the music still swung, still had emotion, even when playing in uncharted waters.
Stuart Jefferson
Good Quality and the included dvd is a nice addition.

Three discs-62,64,72 minutes each approximately. The sound is good, with good separation between the instruments, except the bass which is recorded/mixed a bit low in the music. The DVD is about 1 hour long. This is the same DVD released as part of the 2009 70 CD package of Davis' music, and it gives you a feel for the depth of playing from consummate musicians in this band. The discs are snapped inside a quad-fold wallet style cardboard holder. The 26 page booklet is loose inside the package-there's no "slot" for it, and it could easily fall out. There's an essay by Ashley Kahn, who has written about Davis, Coltrane, and other jazz greats. There's also a number of period b & w photos throughout the booklet. Track information is printed on the back of the package-some details in very small font-and also inside the booklet.

This has been a fine summer/fall for music, with the GRATEFUL DEAD releasing a 73 CD, Europe '72 package, the 4 CD Jimi Hendrix at Winterland compilation, and now this release from Miles Davis. It's also interesting that each of these groups had something in common-namely to push music somewhere new, exciting, and different.

This music, by Davis' second great band, was recorded in Europe while the band was part of the "Newport Jazz Festival in Europe" package. Also performing were Gary Burton, Archie Shepp, Thelonious Monk, Sarah Vaughan, and others. This music by Davis' band has been bootlegged for years, so it's nice to hear an officially sanctioned release with good sound. If you've heard "Winter In Europe 1967", or the massive but fine "Live at the Plugged Nickel" set, then you have an idea in what direction this music is going.

this is my new winner. First off, the DVD is just the proverbial icing, and it's from different shows than the CDs, somebody cared to do this right. I loved the Highlights disc from The Plugged Nickel, even though Miles was not playing his best, the band still sounded inspired. Two years down the road, the inspiration is still flowing and Miles' technical facilities are back in full force. New material, at this point is like a fresh breathe and the "live" factor ups the ante considerably. These tunes, Agitation, Footprints, Riot, Masqualero, Gingerbread Boy are OK in their studio versions but "live" they're juggernauts, jumping off points for a band finding inspiration in the elasticity of the material. The tunes often flow one into another until you're completely lost in their quest for something original. IMHO This new release is the best example of Miles' great 2nd quintet at their apex, at a reasonable price and a great way to kick off this series. Now, if they could only find a place to store the booklet, we'll be all set. I marvel at how many jazz bands try to emulate the sound of this band, today. This is the source of that wellspring.

Columbia has done mostly a good job of repackaging Miles Davis in authoritative boxsets that are more-or-less complete. These 3 CD's improve on bootleg CD's in sound quality and completeness (the first two Paris tracks have never been issued).

But the DVD of the Karlsruhe performance features four compositions (plus "the theme"), while another DVD issue of this concert also includes a 9:16 performance of "Walkin'" (and a few seconds of Hancock's piano intro to "On Green Dolphin Street"), as does the big kitchen-sink Miles Davis Columbia box set. I understand that the estate of Richard Carpenter (not Karen's brother) demanded big bucks and Sony/Columbia wouldn't play ball. So be it, but you'll not find a word about this anywhere in the package. Note that "I Fall in Love Too Easily" is the only performance that was not edited for the TV broadcast that Columbia used for the DVD. There's no legit issue of this full concert.)

I'm very glad to have this package, and I'm glad Columbia has issued music in a systematic fashion (even if it means I've purchased KIND OF BLUE in at least five formats) -- but it's still disappointing that Columbia has not done this right. Funny, I just noticed that the credits at the end of the DVD, apparently from the 2009 box set, do list "Walkin' written by Richard Carpenter" -- oops.

If you're a fan of this second great quintet that Miles Davis had, then by buy this disc. But if you're the type who likes so-called "cool jazz" or the music of Kenny G, Kirk Whalum and other "smooth jazz" artists then this challenging music isn't for you. One reviewer ignorantly ranted that there's no variation in the tunes on this disc must be unaware that the performance of "Agitation" varies in mood and tempo from the Paris to the Belgium concert. The sound is mono but it's so well recorded that any true devotee of Miles will not mind--this disc is a monster!!

But I'm deducting a star for the packaging. As the first reviewer notes, there is no safe place for the booklet, which means that any of us who plan on keeping the set for a few decades will have to either contend with storing it safely elsewhere or remembering it's there.

Since this sort of item appeals mostly to fans, completists, obsessives, cranks (and we pay for the privilege) and since both the Dylan and Johnny Cash bootleg sets did this better, I'm a little put off. Mind you, just a little, since the music is an extension of Plugged Nickel, and as such sits right at the heart of great 20th century recordings.
