Editorial Reviews

This concert from July 8th, 1991 was the last of Miles Davis many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and took place only a few months before his death. Despite a defiant never look back philosophy, Miles was persuaded by Quincy Jones and Claude Nobs to take part in this tribute to his great friend Gil Evans, who had passed away in 1988. This truly unique concert was an historical event and a musical triumph, thankfully captured here for posterity. Miles Davis was a giant of 20th century music and this concert is as much a tribute to him as it is to the late Gil Evans.

Interview with Claude Nobs / Interviews about Miles Davis

It's Miles once again with the Gil Evans Orchestra playing from the albums Miles Ahead, Porgy & Bess and Sketches of Spain (plus Boplicity from Birth of The Cool).

At long last, it's here! If you love the acoustic period of Miles Davis' career here is a concert that he recorded very late in life and (luckily) at a time when audio/video technology was very advanced. Here is the 1991 concert at the jazz festival in Montreux, Switzerland conducted by his long time friend and admirer Quincy Jones. And at this performance Miles finally relented and went back to the music that made him famous. It's Miles once again with the Gil Evans Orchestra playing from the albums Miles Ahead, Porgy & Bess and Sketches of Spain (plus Boplicity from Birth of The Cool). This blue-ray release is one I've been waiting for all these years and today I received my copy.

I bought a VHS copy of the concert six years ago and played it again yesterday. The song "Springsville" (the first song on the album "Miles Ahead") which is the second song on the VHS release of the concert is missing from the blue-ray disk and that is my one disappointment. Springsville is a beautiful piece. Also missing are interviews by Herbie Hancock, George Duke and Quincy Jones, as well as practice sessions that precede the concert on the VHS version. But Claude Nobs' interview and seven more that follow (including one by Betty Carter) paint a vivid and delightful portrait of the great jazz trumpeter who died only three months after this historic live performance. You'd think that all of the preceding material on the VHS that was removed to keep the main show here at exactly one hour would be moved into a "bonus" section. Alas, that is not so. Hold on to your old VHS copy if you still have it.

Miles did admit that the music performed here was difficult to play, given the logistics required and minor variations in performance can be detected when compared to the studio recordings.

The last look at Miles Davis. The music conducted by Quincy Jones is superb and the music was on a very high level of performance. Kudos to everyone involved in this historic event. The DVD is first rate and exceptional.

Even in failing health Miles does not disappoint as does the introduction to Wallace Roney.
That and what more can be said about Quincy Jones.
Despite being a 1991 production Eaglerock has done it again with astounding video and audio quality.
My only question is why so cheap perhaps the price and vintage are scaring many away.
This BR presents excellent value.
It's a must for any collector wanting a piece of the Miles magic and legacy.

This Blu-ray recording reveals how good Miles is. The sound quality is fantastic and gives you the felling of being there when played through high quality equipment. This is music to hear and be seen. I recommend it without reservation.

It is hard to imagine this was a live recording as it is almost Studio Quality.
Plus, Miles plays a lot of his old stuff he hadn't performed live in 30 years.

I was really enjoying this when it ended at an hour. The details specify this at 133 minutes. Using common core math that's, let's see......... over 2 hours?

The picture and sound are outstanding, just wondering why it says 133 minutes. There are a number of interviews that I haven't yet watched but it would be the first time I've seen bonus material included in the running time...
