New Release: Miles Davis 'Live At Fillmore' Complete Performance

Yet another re-release is planned for jazz legend / guru Miles Davis, this time the 'Live At Filmore' album, which was originally released in 1970. The concert lasted 4 days at the famed Filmore East in Manhattan's East Village. 

The original release was heavily edited and therefore the track names were changed to the dates of the performances (Wednesday Miles, Thursday Miles etc). The CD release in 1997 had the actual song names. 

This expanded re-issue will be a 4 CD release with the entire four days included, which means there will be over two hours of unreleased music, the sound of Miles' electric jazz era. The performers include Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes electric piano, Keith Jarretton electronic organ, Dave Holland on acoustic and electric bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto Moreira on percussion, cuica (Brazilian drum).

The songs include It's About that Time, Directions, I Fall in Love Too Easily, and many more.
