Biography

by William Ruhlmann

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

Product Description

MILES DAVIS live throughout 1970, as he was single-handedly bringing jazz into the commercial rock era! 4 audio discs of primarily unreleased music with complete performances including 2+ HOURS of extended material and the ultimate rarities. An eye-and-ear opening set curated by Carlos Santana, full of fascinating firsthand accounts and profound insight into a seismic shift in American society, music, and culture:

“If ever there was a time when a rock audience would be willing to open their ears and hear some great modern jazz like Miles was doing, it was at the Fillmore. Bill Graham created that environment consciously and honestly and brutally, and got a new generation to hear the beauty in this music. That was the deal: if you want to hear Steve Miller or Neil Young or Santana, you've got to hear Miles Davis. … The sound of Miles at the Fillmore is like a microscope on everything that happened before in jazz and everything that was happening then with all the protesting, the shootings, the beatings, the Black Panthers.” Carlos Santana

August 1969 to August 1970 was the most productive year of Miles Davis’s career: in that short span of time, the trumpeter recorded enough material for his studio double-album Bitches Brew, a studio single album Jack Johnson, three sides of another studio double-album Big Fun, four tracks from the double-album Live-Evil AND, across five nights at Bill Graham’s famed Fillmore rock palaces in April and June of 1970, coast-to-coast at both the Fillmore East & West—the complete, legendary concerts that will now see the light of day and be made available to fans in their entirety!


MILES AT THE FILLMORE – Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3.

The searing white heat of these concerts, originally issued in severely edited form to accommodate LP sides, and without any track or song indications are now made whole. The additional 135 minutes of music in this set include a range spanning Wayne Shorter's ‘Paraphernalia’ and ‘Footprints’ from the earlier acoustic repertoire; to an early version of ‘Miles Runs The Voodoo Down’ plus a rare encore performance of ‘Spanish Key’. This unprecedented collection tells a story through its electrifying music, images, and cultural impact.

This 4-CD package is an official release of Miles' four nights at The Fillmore East rock palace between 17-20 June 1970, complete and unedited.

First, the packaging is exemplary. A 5-fold jewel case presents each performance on its own brightly-coloured CD (blue for 17th, yellow for 18th, pink for 19th, orange for 20th). Additionally you get 3x bonus tracks from the April 11th performance at the Fillmore West (2 bolted onto the end of the first disk, one on the third). A 32-page booklet containing an extended essay by Michael Cuscana and plenty of photos evokes the period to perfection, and you also get an odd monochrome foldout mini-poster of the band in concert, with contemporary news clippings on the reverse.

Now, the music. This was the first outing for the 2-keyboard player line-up of Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea, with Steve Grossman replacing Wayne Shorter as sideman on sax three months prior to these recordings. The rhythm section of young-Brit bass player Dave Holland with drummer Jack DeJohnette, and percussionist/flautist Airto Moreira continued unchanged through the European tour that summer, including the seminal gig at the Isle of Wight Festival available on the DVD `Miles Electric'. Only Jarrett is missing from the Fillmore West bonus tracks from April, as by that date he was not in the band.

Here is the fusion-era band on top form: tight, adventurous, ever pushing the boundaries, feeling their way through long improvisations and exploring new dynamics each night so no two performances are the same. If you're a devotee of Miles' BB era and jazz fusion in general, you're in for a treat.

This is an otherwordly release - music made 44 years ago that sound like it's being beamed from our distant future.

Superb sound quality, and of course the full unedited shows, means this blows away that 1970-released live album from this run At Fillmore.

Utterly recommended to anyone with the mind and heart open enough to receive this visionary music in the spirit with which it was created.

La Rubia, my long-suffering significant other, shoots me an overindulgent “Yes dear” kind of look as she realises that the package that has just plopped through the postbox is yet another (Yet another? Yet another!) live Miles set. I cautiously avoid the information that, in a way, I already have this one, discretion being the better part of valour at times.

Originally released in heavily edited form due to the limitations of vinyl, this set is supposedly the complete recordings from four nights at the Fillmore East during June 1970. Yet despite having owned and played the original release for a long time now I struggled to recognise anything on CD1, and CD2, whilst starting off sounding familiar, soon moves into unfamiliar ground. There’s some intriguing fiddling with the potentials of the new electronic keyboards, and DeJohnette’s drums are relentless, though sometimes their syncopation works against the flow (a good thing, in this context) and it is Dave Holland’s metronomic bass which is the lynchpin of the enterprise, holding it together rhythmically. As an encore, CD2 features a previously unreleased version of Spanish Key that is almost worth the price of the record on its own.

On CD3 the breakdown in Bitches Brew sounds familiar, but looking at the timings on the liner that appears to be the only piece that survived the cutting room floor on the original release. On CD4, notwithstanding a different title on the original, the opening is instantly recognisable, but with the first statement of the chorus from Directions it becomes fresh and new again.

Volume 3 of the Bootleg Series documenting rare or unheard live performances by Miles Davis is probably the pick of the three volumes to date if only because these are professionally recorded concerts in absolutely stellar sound quality (bar the three 'bonus' tracks from earlier gigs at the Fillmore West which are slightly 'muffled'). The price is absurd (I paid just over £15) for 4+ hours of music with beautiful packaging and a thick wad of liner notes by the noted jazz authority (and Miles curator); Michael Cuscuna with plenty of evocative pictures.

The music itself from four sets at the Fillmore East over consecutive nights is extraordinary and a very different beast from Miles studio sets of the time (and not for the faint hearted!) with plenty of ferocious free playing inter-dispersed with the funkier sections and one track seguing into another with no breaks (basically a very long medley). At this point Keith Jarrett was still settling into the band playing distorted and echoplexed organ more for colouration and texture rather than playing actually melodies with the dominant melodic role being taken by Chick Corea's Fender Rhodes (also echoplexed and distorted much of the time). Dave Holland's electric bass anchors the whole thing which is just as well when things are getting pretty wild. Jack DeJohnette demonstrates amazing versatility seemingly equally comfortable in both the rhythmic and free sections. Airto does his percussive thing with occasion outbursts on his flute and whistle, not making entire musical sense but keeping things lively, and every so often he gets a bit overexcited and starts shouting and exhorting to the band. Steve Grossman plays intense, real intense with his Coltrane-isms turned up to the max bringing real energy to the proceedings.
