9 Monate vor der offiziellen Veröffentlichung des Albums "Bitches Brew" spielte Miles Davis auf dem Newport Jazz Festival am 5.Juli 1969 bereits einige Songs aus dem Album live. Auf der vorliegenden CD "Bitches Brew Live" sind diese bislang unveröffentlichten Aufnahmen erstmals zu hören, zusammen mit weiteren
Tracks vom Isle Of Wight Festival 29.August 1970, vier Monate nach VÖ des Albums.
Highlights sind sicher die erste professionell aufgenommene Live Version von "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down" sowie die allererste Aufnahme der umgearbeiteten elektrischen Version von "Sanctuary". Insgesamt 60 faszinierende Minuten Jazz History.
Following the successful release of our 40th Anniversary Editions of Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew comes a collection of nine rare live performances recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival, nine months before the original release of Bitches Brew, and at the Isle Of Wight Festival four months after release. Three of the tracks featured on the album are previously unreleased.
BITCHES BREW LIVE offers 3 previously unissued tracks recorded July 5, 1969 at Newport Jazz Festival—including the first ever professionally recorded live version of Miles Runs The Voodoo Down and the first known recording of the revamped electric version of Sanctuary — just over a month before Miles went into the studio to record what would become his fastest selling album of all time, Bitches Brew.
Fast-forward one year to August 1970 at the Isle of Wight Festival where Miles plays with a much more electric, rock-oriented sound in front of 600, 000 people! This incredible full set includes the title track Bitches Brew and Spanish Key played by Davis’s remarkable all-star group captured live at the peak of its powers—Gary Bartz (alto sax, soprano sax), Chick Corea (electric piano), Keith Jarrett (organ), Dave Holland (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion). Author Michael Azerrad’s original liner notes incorporate new interviews with legendary Newport Festival founder George Wein, and filmmaker Murray Lerner, who captured one of the most spectacular music festivals in history on film in Message to Love: Isle of Wight Festival. Now, on BITCHES BREW LIVE, fans get a firsthand behind-the-scenes insight into an incredible point in Miles’s career when he was headlining alongside some of the then new rock groups including Sly & The Family Stone, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and more!
