This concert has been available officially and unofficially in various forms over the years, and I don’t think a single performance or outtake has gone untouched over the years. As with most everything Davis had done in his monumental career, it’s during a pivotal time; his transition to new places from the more traditional ones (considering that Bop and Cool School could be construed as traditional by this time). And it features an equally legendary lineup in this Quintet appearance.
Here’s what’s what:
Miles Davis Quintet
Juan-Les Pins Festival
July 26-28, 1962
1. So What (July 26, 1963)
2 Stella By Starlight (July 26)
4. If I were a Bell (July 28, 1963)
5. So What (July 28)
Goes perfect with this particular Sunday.
Turn it up and relax.
