EXCERPT FROM LINER NOTES FROM 'Miles Davis Quintet - Live In Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series Vol.1'
I once told Miles, ‘when you had Herbie, Wayne, Tony and Ron on tour in Europe, I wouldn’t have dared to get on the bandstand with you.’ That group was not ahead of its time. They were the time.
— Jazz impresario George Wein, producer of the 1967 “Newport Jazz Festival in Europe” tour

In an interview with New York magazine, Don Cheadle was asked about the status of the Miles Davis film that he has had in development for years. He answered, "It's day by day. I actually just got off the phone with the studio executives about putting it together. It's a difficult time to make films, especially ones that don't have people flying or sequels or cars. So we're grinding, you know. We're struggling through, but it's going to happen."
