Miles Davis: "The Complete Concert: February 12,1964"

This historic concert which Miles Davis and his Quintet performed at the brand new Lincoln Center on February 12,1964 (Lincoln's Birthday)was a benefit for the registration of African-American voters in Alabama and Mississippi as they were denied this even though the law said they were eligible to vote..The ticket prices were very high for the time yet the new concert hall was packed and Columbia was there to record it. Miles' Quintet consisted of George Coleman on tenor saxophone, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass and 19 year old drum phenomenon, Tony Williams. Hancock, Carter and Williams gave Miles a kick and brought out a whole new aspect of his playing and it's much in evidence on this recording. Plus this contains some of the very best playing by saxophonist George Coleman.The repertoire is what Miles had been playing for years but everything sounds new and fresh with this band which was at it's peak this night. That's the Jazz Feature tonight.....Jazz History right here!
