"Bitches Brew Live" Hailed By Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone And More

BITCHES BREW LIVE, released on February 8th, has received positive reviews from media organizations including the Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone and Jazzwise Magazine! Read more below:

"This album could be the choice for anyone who's heard all the (justified) hype and acclaim behind the jazz-meets-rock amalgam Bitches Brew but hasn't been able to crack its dark and sometimes thorny code. Along with the six-disc Cellar Door Sessions 1970, this recording beautifully showcases the fire-breathing power of Davis' band onstage." - Los Angeles Times

"This dynamic and typically uncompromising live set ... BITCHES BREW LIVE documents Miles Davis’ fearless mission to rival the rock idiom, armed with some of Jazz’s finest musicians executing some of his most testing, political and compelling material to date." - Jazzwise Magazine

"That set, just released as BITCHES BREW LIVE (Columbia/Legacy) was a fantastic accident. Davis' saxophonist Wayne Shorter didn't make the the gig; he was stuck in traffic. So the leader went on with a quartet and stayed up front, firing silver gunbursts of trumpet over the stark power-jazz tumult of electric pianist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Jack DeJohnette, a rhythmic core of the larger band that would cut Bitches Brew ... Davis was moving – and documenting that motion – faster than most folks, rock or jazz, in that crowd realized." - Rolling Stone
