4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Farewell 27 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
They lined up trumpeter Wallace Roney, in case Miles wasn’t well enough or chops-wise fit enough to see this gig through. This was both a statement of Miles’s slightly fragile health and Roney’s rising star status. They needn’t have bothered. Miles played almost the whole technically demanding show and played it superbly as this CD testifies.
Miles Davis was an artist who never looked back and whose continual musical questing changed the conception of jazz five times over, if not more. So what persuaded him to play a show that was in effect a greatest hits package from one of his most popular periods – the fertile late 1950s when teamed with the mercurial Gil Evans and produced three classic orchestral albums? For that we have to thank Quincy Jones, a man as hip as Miles and cut from the same mould; a trumpeter with a deep respect for tradition but determined to look ahead.
Jones working with working with effervescent promoter Claude Nobs persuaded Miles to front an enormous jazz orchestra to recreate Gil Evans’ finely wrought charts for Sketches of Spain, Porgy and Bess and Miles Ahead which had so delighted so many in the 1950s. Evans, described by Sting as being like one of those mystical elders from Star Wars died in 1988. He always complained that he needed an extra rehearsal before going into the studio to record the orchestral works. The Montreux Concert didn’t stint on time or quality. Supporting Davis were the massed ranks of the Gil Evans Orchestra (led by his son), The George Gruntz Concert Band and additional players to double the woodwind section – forty seven musicians in all. The set featured not just some of the best-loved pieces from the orchestral albums such My Ship, Summertime and Solea.

5.0 out of 5 stars a brilliant live performance 22 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Gil Evans and Miles Davis collaboration of the 50's, produced some of the very best of jazz. Gil's orchestral arrangements gave Miles exactly the right sound for his genius improvisation. As it says on the sleeve notes it took Quincy Jones to persuade Miles to revive those sounds at the Montreux jazz festival, with the Gil Evans Orchestra. The result is magical not only because it is a live performance but because it takes us back to the time when these songs were written and were the new sound. I was born in the 50's and I grew up listening to all the jazz greats but rarely has there been such a collaboration as on this album, this is simply great musical history being recreated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tears at Bedtime. 29 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have had this album a number of years now and have used it sparingly in order that it may retain some power to affect me in the manner in which it first did. Not being one to sentimentalise or over egg the pudding, it is a confession, then, to cast my opinion on this performance publicly. There is not a wrong step in this recording and it hits sublime early on and effectively stays there. Perhaps it's the belief, in light of subsequent events, that Miles realised this was his swansong or perhaps the spirit within the performance because he did, but, for whatever reason, there is a vitality within the music that grasps you and doesn't let go. I have many albums by Miles Davis but this, like no other, can take a hold of you and change things around for a while. Try it whilst in a vulnerable frame of mind, late, lights dimmed and a whisky bottle to hand to feel truly human for an hour or so.
