The GRAMMY Museum recently paid tribute to the 40th Anniversary of Miles Davis’ jazz-funk-rock masterpiece Bitches Brew, which was just released in both deluxe and collector’s box set editions.
Ranked as one of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Bitches Brew is widely regarded as his seminal fusion masterpiece which changed the course of music. Recorded at the end of a tumultuous decade (August 1969), Bitches Brew reflected the chaos and beauty of a society stretched (and stressed) to its breaking point.
Last night, Thursday, September 9, Dogfish Head Brewery Owner Sam Calagione, hosted a dinner / celebration at the restaurant, Eleven Madison Park in New York City, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Miles Davis Bitches Brew. Not only the classic album, but the Dogfish Head Bitches Brew.
One of the bonus items included in The Genius Of Miles Davis is a custom-designed T-shirt manufactured exclusively for this collection by Trunk Ltd. Pictured against a rich black background is Miles Davis in all his glory--sporting his trademark shades and playing his one-of-a-kind Martin trumpet.
On Thursday, September 2nd, the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles will commemorate the 40th anniversary of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew with a free multimedia presentation. Panelists and special guests at the event will include Bernie Maupin, Erin Davis, Vince Wilburn, Jr., and Henry Rollins.

There have been many Miles Davis tribute bands over the years that have primarily focused on capturing Davis’ exact sound rather that the creative spirit and energy of the late musical pioneer. This was not the case with the Mile Davis Bitches Brew Remix performance Saturday night at the Sunset Junction Festival.
An individually numbered, exact replica of Miles Davis' trumpet case houses THE GENIUS OF MILES DAVIS Collection. Cases are numbered, and limited to 1955, the year that Miles signed to Columbia Records.
