Bitches brew by Miles Davis( Sound Recording )

Zum 40. Jubiläum des Meilensteins 'Bitches Brew' (1970) von Miles Davis erscheint die Platte in einer Sonderedition, in der das ursprüngliche Tracklisting um bisher unveröffentlichte Titel ergänzt wird. Ausserdem liegt eine DVD mit einem Livemitschnitt eines Auftrittes vom November 1969 in Kopenhagen, bei dem Teile des im April 1970 folgenden Albums gespielt wurden. Dieses Konzert ist ebenfalls unveröffentlicht. Die Besetzung ist jeweils beeindruckend: An der Studioaufnahme nahmen neben Miles Davis (Trompete) Wayne Shorter (Saxofone), Joe Zawinul und Chick Corea (beide Piano), Lenny White und Jack DeJohnette (beide Schlagzeug), John McLaughlin (Gitarre), Dave Holland (Bass) u.a. teil. Auf der Bühne spielte das Quintett Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Chick Core, Dave Holland und Jack DeJohnette. Mit 'Bitches Brew' stiess der innovative Davis einmal mehr eine neue Tür auf, die Platte gilt - noch mehr als der Vorgänger 'In a silent way' - als Wegbereiter des Fusion-Jazz. ä'Bitches Brew' is so forward thinking, it retains its freshness and mystery in the 21st centuryä (www.allmusic.com)

Miles on Miles : interviews and encounters with Miles Davis by Miles Davis( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 508 libraries worldwide
Gathering 30 most vital Miles Davis interviews--on his music, his life, and his philosophy--this collection reveals the jazz icon as a complex and contradictory man, secretive at times but extraordinarily revealing at others. Miles was not only a musical genius, but an enigma, and nowhere else was he so compelling, exasperating, and entertaining as he was in his interviews, which vary from polite to outrageous, from straight-ahead to contrarian. Many were conducted by leading journalists like Leonard Feather, Stephen Davis, Ben Sidran, Mike Zwerin, and Nat Hentoff; while others have never before been printed, and are newly transcribed from radio and television shows--making this the definitive source for anyone wanting to really encounter the legend in print
