Here’s some amazing video of Miles Davis live in Oslo on November 9, 1971. This is a band that was never documented in the recording studio—Gary Bartz on soprano and alto sax; Keith Jarrett on keyboards; Michael Henderson on bass; Don Alias and Mtume on congas and percussion; and Ndugu Leon Chancler on drums. But their European tour (nearly two dozen concerts between October and November) has been well documented on bootlegs, which gives me hope that some of the best shows will wind up in the third volume of Sony’s The Bootleg Series, which has brought brilliant live performances to light on two 3CD/1DVD sets to date.
