The first part of this week's post is three new purchases of mine, First is Miles Davis Quintet, Freedom Jazz Dance, the Bootleg Series Vol. 5. Contrary to the "bootleg" title, this 3 CD set if an official release (from my hippie days, I always associate the term bootleg will unauthorized recording). As quoted from the Miles Davis site, "A 3CD box set collection chronicling Miles’ musical evolution in the studio from 1966-1968 working with his “second great quintet,” the latest edition in Columbia/Legacy’s acclaimed Miles Davis Bootleg Series provides an unprecedented look into the artist’s creative process, drawing on full session reels including all rehearsals, partial and alternate takes, extensive and fascinating studio conversation and more." This collect is more what I expected the Don Cheadle's Mile Davis movie, Miles Ahead to about. Hearing the creative progress behind the music in just fascinating. Well worth getting.
Enjoy (I always think of the scene from the movie "10" where Dudley Moore visits the pastor. Ouch.)
