Product Description

Product Description

This historically important 10 DVD set captures all of Miles Davis performances at the renowned Montreux Jazz Festival between 1973 and 1991, the last being less than three months before his death. It is an unparalleled archive of live Miles Davis performances and is now being released on a visual format for the first time ever. Although many tracks are repeated across the years the concerts are strikingly individual with extensive improvisation and frequent rearrangements. The final concert from 1991 sees Miles Davis paying tribute to his collaborator and close find Gil Evans who had died in 1988. With Miles philosophy of never look back it was extraordinary that he would agree to perform such a show and it was a truly unique occasion captured here for posterity. Miles Davis is undeniably one of the most important and successful jazz figures of the 20th century. This unrivalled DVD box set of his live performances at Montreux is a release to be truly cherished. Bonus Features On disc one there are full interviews with Claude Nobs, Carlos Santana and Herbie Hancock plus shorter interviews about Miles Davis with Monty Alexander, Helen Merrill, Betty Carter, Charlie Haden, Gil Goldstein, Stanley Clarke, Jean Luc Ponty and Al Di Meola and Michel Petrucciani.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Nice set for Miles entusiasts but I must wonder why the 1973 show is only 27 minutes when there is longer video footage available? The Miles fans who buy this only for the 1973 material - since some are not so much interested in Miami Vice era Miles stage antics - might save some money by getting the previously released highlights sampler DVD which has the same and only tune ("Ife") in its full lenght. The longer video, ~40 minutes worth, also containing the tune "Calypso Frelimo", while inferior in quality, is circulating the trading community, making one wonder why it was deemed unworthy of inclusion in this 10 DVD box set.
Other than that, well done, mighty good audio and adequate enough video for the period.

Have watched 4 disks so far. The first performance (disk 1) was sort of disappointing, but the rest have been splendid. John Scofield at his most creative is the soloist of choice for these viewed disks.

I was worried about format, since it came from Germany, but it is NTSC (contrary to the description on Amazon UK) and appears to be region free. Very satisfied with the production value of the package.
