there was a seed today of  miles davis, 1964-07-12 in tokyo, which i have already.  but that got me pulling out some older miles…  here’s a show from amsterdam in 1957, very nice, that was shared by “ubu”.

it’s apparently a well-known bootleg (lonehill); the version shared here having been speed-corrected by “dr goody”.

from halowdance & goody notes:  “amsterdam concert” is a rare live miles davis recording from 1957.  this album, one of the least known recordings of miles davis, was recorded at the concertgebouw in amsterdam on december 8, 1957, a couple of days after the recording of the movie soundtrack “ascenseur pour l’échafaud.” on this concert, miles didn’t play with his regular quintet, but with the same line-up he used for the recording of “ascenseur pour l’échafaud.” it features barney wilen on tenor saxophone, rené urtreger on piano, pierre michelot on bass and kenny clarke on drums.
