23 Songs, 3 Hours 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

These five European concerts find Miles Davis and John Coltrane at both the apex and tail end of their musical relationship. Joined by pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb (the rhythm section from the classic Kind of Blue), the two giants display vividly contrasting styles: Davis’ trumpet is spare and astringent in its lyricism, while Coltrane’s tenor sax bursts with movement and radical invention. Their artistic paths may have starkly diverged, but jazz was incalculably richer for the encounter.

Fantastic!

All these this time later, to discover these live gems is truly amazing. The sound and the performances are stellar, and of course the music is top drawer.

TY

TY for releasing this...we may never hear this level of American Music again...the soundtrack of my life...this and the Blackhawk albums may become my favorite live albums of all time...so much to say here but rather just sit back and listen...

Where's Trane? Stricly commenting on samples.

Whomever the editor was for these samples rendered them nearly entirely Miles-centric. The only sample on which I could hear Coltraine was "Fran Dance." So, those of you who've purchased the entire set, how's Coltrane on this set?
