We have a brand new column for you today. It´s called Friday Jazz, and the concept should be quite self-explanatory.
For this first edition of Friday Jazz, we´ve found a real treat for you:
Miles Davis´ legendary performance at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970. The 38-minute performance took place in front of an audience of roughly 400.000 people, 99% of them rock fans. By the end of this performance, Miles probably had at least 200.000 new die-hard fans.
Personel: Miles Davis (trumpet), Gary Bartz (sax), Chick Corea (piano), Keith Jarrett (organ), Dave Holland (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion)
Very cool Havard! I’ve always thought that it was massive loss to modern music that because of Jimi Hendrix’s untimely death Miles and Jimi didn’t get to collaberate liked they wanted to….what album that would have been!!!
True. Imagine the band above with Jimi on the guitar…
