Miles Davis' historic four-night residency at New York City's Fillmore East will see new life on March 25, when Columbia/Legacy releases Miles At The Fillmore - Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3. The upcoming box set spans four CDs and presents Davis' string of 1970 performances at the Fillmore (which took place from June 17 through 20) in full-length, unedited form for the first time ever.
At this year's South by Southwest conference and festival, join the Miles Davis House on Saturday, March 15th at Old School in Austin, TX from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Hosted by Cheryl Davis, Erin Davis and Vince Wilburn, Jr., the event will feature headliner Lucinda Williams, as well as Nicole Atkins, Cheers Elephant, Res, Niles Rivers, Majestico and The Dolls featuring the Original Pinettes Brass Band.
Miles At The Fillmore - Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Volume 3 compiles four incendiary nights at New York City’s legendary Fillmore East, as breathtaking a series of concerts as any the then-dominant counter-culture could offer, then and perhaps even now.
This isn’t easy listening jazz, but then Davis surely never was. Instead, the release offers a glimpse into the remarkable interplay between remarkable musicians, with Davis at the forefront and as in charge as ever.
The new four-CD box, Miles At The Fillmore - Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3 set, due March 25, presents his unedited performances from the Fillmore East in New York, adding 135 minutes of previously unreleased music that includes a handful of tracks culled from performances earlier that year at the Fillmore West in San Francisco.
TONIGHT! Chat LIVE with Miles Davis' son, Erin Davis and nephew, Vince Wilburn, Jr. at 9pm EST / 6pm PST on iRock JAZZLIVE! Join the chat by using this link http://irockjazz.com/irock-jazz.

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Miles Davis' concert at Philharmonic Hall (now known as Avery Fisher Hall) at New York's Lincoln Center on February 12, 1964. The concert was part of a series of benefits co-sponsored by the NAACP, the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee to support voter registration in Mississippi and Louisiana, as well as an unofficial homage to President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in November 1963.
Fifty years ago, on Feb. 12, 1964, Miles Davis led a band through one of the most exciting gigs to ever take place at New York's Philharmonic Hall. The show was a cultural event: a benefit for voter registration in Louisiana and Mississippi at the high point of the the civil rights movement, and an unofficial homage to John F. Kennedy, who had been assassinated a few months before. And the recording of the evening would turn into not one, but two live albums: the ballad-based My Funny Valentine and the more frenetic Four & More.
Tom Schnabel from KCRW’s Rhythm Planet examines the new Columbia Records box set of the complete mono recordings Miles Davis did from 1955-1961, as well as the first publication of his collected drawings and paintings, during an in-studio interview with Erin Davis (son of Miles) and Vince Wilburn, Jr. (nephew of Miles).
