Miles Davis At Fillmore-Friday June 19,1970.

Miles Davis and his band which he called "Directions" was at this time playing music alongside some of the great rock stars of the day. Davis' music had changed and he was using electric instruments and some rock elements as well and had dropped the standards and tunes like "Walkin'" and "So What" from his repertoire. The music here is an extension of the concepts found on "Bitches Brew" (his best selling album). The band includes Mr. Davis on trumpet(open and unenhanced by electronics), Steve Grossman on soprano and tenor saxophone, Keith Jarrett on electric organ, Chick Corea on electic piano,Dave Holland on electric bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums and Airto Moreira on percussion, flute and voice. The music is intense and powerful and although this music has been issued before this new reissue removes the edits and we get the full evening's performance. Hence the full evening of music as performed at Fillmore East in New York on June 19,1970. A powerhouse band!
