Incomparably Cool Miles Davis Treats
The Complete On the Corner Sessions boxed set recently came out to much fanfare, including my own hyperventilating blather on the subject here. (By the way, I noticed that Dusty Groove is selling the six-CD set for the reasonable sum of $127—a bargain for one of the greatest albums ever, plus bonus cuts galore and an indispensable, image-rich booklet.)
Below enjoy a teasingly truncated interview with a few of Miles' old band members from that creatively fertile era and then immerse yourself into the maelstrom of a performance from that stellar year of 1973. It's scarier than any Halloween mischief you'll be experiencing tonight.
