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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Transitional Miles Recording July 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This was a transitional band for Miles Davis.

From the final breakup of his band with John Coltrane and/or Cannonball Adderly fronting a rhythm section of Wynton Kelly/Paul Chambers/Jimmy Cobb, until the formation of the famous "2nd Classic Quintet" with Wayne Shorter/Herbie Hancock/Ron Carter/Tony Williams, Miles band went through changes in both personnel and artistic temperament. The rhythm section changed from Kelly/Chambers/Cobb to Hancock/Carter/Williams and the front line experienced even more radical turnover.

After Trane left Miles to begin his solo career, Miles went through a string of saxophonists looking for that elusive quality of exploration/combustibility/agressiveness that Trane brought to the sound of Miles' group. After Trane, Sonny Stitt, Hank Mobley, Frank Strozier, George Coleman, and Sam Rivers all spent some time in the saxophone chair before the band finally gelled with the addition of Wayne Shorter in the fall of 1964 (represented in another new live cd release "Miles: In Berlin").

The signficant thing about this live performance from France in 1963 is that it is the first recorded performance of the band with Tony Williams on the drums. With the addition of Williams, the rhythm section of the 2nd classic quintet (Herbie Hancock/Ron Carter/Tony Williams) became firmly entrenched and the future artistic trajectory of the group was set.

What is most interesting about this performance to me is hearing the tension between Miles' musical past and future playing out in the sound of this group. George Coleman on tenor saxophone represents the hard bop/mainstream approach that had dominated Miles sound since the formation of the "first classic quintet" in the mid 1950s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves greater recognition June 24, 2005
By Rinaldo
Format:Audio CD
The recordings of Miles' 1964 Philharmonic Hall concert have acquired a reputation for being Miles' best live recordings from the '63-'64 period. As an avid Miles fan, I agreed with that assessment. That was before I had ever heard this concert from the Antibes jazz festival.

This album is AS GOOD if not in some ways better than Miles' justly famous "My Funny Valentine" and "Four and More" albums. Miles himself plays as intensely as in the 1964 Phil. Hall concert, and his trumpet technique itself is often crisper in the Antibes concert. George Coleman's playing may be more adventurous and intense here than on the 1964 concert, which makes him a better fit with the Hancock/Carter/Williams rhythm section. All through this recording, the quintet's interaction has a giddy, at times playful tone, and the musicians' excitement can be easily heard.

It was high time that Columbia made this recording available in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential music April 5, 2006
By jsa
Format:Audio CD
I bought "Miles Davis in Europe" on vinyl over 30 years ago & never got tired of listening to it - a great band recording great music just before Miles went off into his abstract period.

One of the distinctive apects of this classic disc is the piano playing of Herbie Hancock. His geometric solos & ornamentations are endlessly interesting, perfectly complementing the ethereal playing of Miles Davis & George Coleman.

Despite all of the kudos for the fine "Friday & Saturday Night at the Blackhawk" sessions, I think "In Europe" is much more interesting.

One side note - the cd cover reproduces the original album art, which mistakenly identifies the recording as stereo. The sound, which is excellent, is actually mono.

5.0 out of 5 stars SPECTACULAR QUINTESSENTIAL QUINTET PERFORMANCE. June 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Five Stars? No, easily a SIX! A one word Review? SPECTACULAR!! An Essential Recording for any serious jazz collection.The big difference here is intensity and Tony Williams!! The addition of the teenage drumming genius Tony Williams was a brilliant acquistion by Miles and it revitalized the quintet with his youthful freshness and orchestral cunning. And Davis formed one of the greatest rhythm sections in jazz history, along with Herbie Hancock on piano and the redoubtable Ron Carter on bass. George Coleman, who synthesized Coltrane and Rollins into a personal style, was also a great 'get' for the quintet (beating out Frank Strozier, I'm told). And they play like dervishes on this CD, finally released at a sensible price for such a classic recording.

All performances are the "Pieces D'Resistance" of this disc. "Autumn Leaves" is FANTASTIC, both individually and collectively. Mile's muted solo is so fresh, relaxed, and inventive. Coleman's solo, composed of packets of notes, packs a powerful punch leading to a crescendo, opening the door for Hancock's relentlessly brilliant, rhythmically varied solo with some great block chording. Note the fascinating musical conversation between Hancock and Williams at the beginning of the piano solo, before it surges back into 4/4. Carter's arco bass solo is equally brilliant. But Williams is operating on a level of jazz drumming on a par with the greatest drum masters, driving and inspiring the musicians to new heights during their solos. WOW!! I've listened to this song for decades and it still amazes me. But this was just the beginning...enter "Milestones".

We've heard "Milestones" a million times but Miles has concocted a new version for this occasion.
