The New York Times has published a stellar review of “Miles Davis Quintet – Live In Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series Vol. 1,” which will be in stores everywhere starting September 20, 2011. The newspaper writes that the collection “captures Davis’s finest working band at its apogee … the music sounds staggeringly contemporary, pointing toward some crucial attributes of our present jazz era even as it ratifies, more firmly than ever, the singular dynamism of Davis’s 1960s quintet. And as the first release in a series of previously unsanctioned music — the plan is to put out at least one a year for the next several years — it answers the question of what we could possibly hope for from a Miles Davis estate.”
The review also calls the concert from the Tivolis Kocertsal in Copenhagen “the fiercest of the bunch. … If it had ever been released as a single album it would be recognized as one of the most thrilling live recordings of Davis’s career.” Read the complete review at The New York Times website.
