Miles Davis / On The Air 1958-1959 2CD

Product Information

Following the two previous Miles Davis boxsets by United Archives, this double CD enables us to discover airshots from seven concerts that were broadcast on radio or on TV. The band is of course Miles’ legendary sextet : John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans,Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb.

These performances are essential additions to the studio albums released during the same period of 1958-1959. This set includes for instance three versions of ‘So What’, in which John Coltrane and Miles Davis do solo improvisations that for sheer mastery and originality are quite unique. The booklet contains detailed linernotes in English and original pictures.
