Live In Europe 1967 - The Bootleg Series Vol. 1

Live In Europe 1967 - The Bootleg Series Vol. 1 by Miles Davis
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Columbia/Legacy
There's certain ferocity in this live set from Miles' "second great quintet" -- the five-man outfit he led between '64 and '69 that included a young Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. Listen to Hancock on the opening solo on Miles' "Agitation" and it's clear the group was pushing their genre -- as composers and soloists -- into unknown territory. At times it remains challenging to modern ears, so it's difficult to imagine how wild it must have sounded that night in Antwerp, Belgium. This is the first of a series of shows recorded by state radio in the fall of 1967.
