4.0 out of 5 stars The highlights DVD opens with a whimper that's really a bang., July 9, 2011
This review is from: Live at Montreux: Highlights 1973-1991 (DVD)
Judge James A. Stewart, DVD Verdict--Miles Davis: Live at Montreux 1973-1991 features ten of the best numbers from Davis and his band.
* "Ife"--1973
* "Speak: That's What Happened"--1984
* "Code MD"--1985
* "Pacific Express"--1985
* "Jean-Pierre"--1986
* "Heavy Metal Prelude"--1988
* "Jo Jo"--1989
* "Hannibal"--1990

Two numbers are from Sketches of Spain:

* "The Pan Piper"--1991
* "Solea"--1991

The highlights DVD opens with a whimper that's really a bang. Davis and his band are on stage, doing nothing, just waiting to perform. Tuning instruments gives way to gentle music as you wait for Davis to start blowing on his trumpet. When he does, "Ife" is eerily mesmerizing. Plenty of closeups let viewers see Davis and his band members at work.

The audio excellently captures both the boldness of Davis' trumpet and the pindrop softness of other sounds, including gentle taps on the drums or an almost whispering softness with the same trumpet.
