Full Show Monday: Miles Davis Group – Berlin 1971

[We're still days away from getting back to full speed due to issues with internet stemming from Sandy. As such, we weren't able to post our Full Show Friday post this past Friday, so here it is today.]

It’s been a hellacious week for many of us in the Northeast who are dealing with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. So once you put the work week to bed, we’ve got an amazing one-hour live concert special for you to watch that features two of the greatest musicians to ever pick up an instrument  - Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett.

Miles Davis brought a version of his Miles Davis Group that included Jarrett on keys, Gary Bartz on soprano and alto sax, Michael Henderson on bass, Leon Chancler on drums and percussionists Don Alias and James Mtume to Europe in late 1971 before disbanding the group. The septet played the Philharmonie in Berlin on November 6th for a show that was broadcast on German TV. Over the course of the hour-long program, Davis and his band run through a medley that contains bits of Directions, Honky Tonk, What I Say, Sanctuary,  It’s About That Time and Funky Tonk. This professionally-shot footage gives us an intimate look at these talented musicians in action…
