This review is from: Miles Davis & Quincy Jones Live At Montreux (Audio CD)
I approached this album with some trepidation - how wrong I was. Miles was never one to look back but on this, his swansong he finally gave in after some gentle prodding from Quincy Jones. Recorded just two months before his death he must have known his time had come. This is effectively a Greatest Hits set of his ground breaking work with Gil Evans, featuring the classic arrangements from Miles Ahead, Porgy & Bess, and Sketches of Spain. It is beautiful, it is poignant, it is a superb summing up of a giant's career. I can't recall any other album affecting me like this, I wept. Truly a classic.
