Miles Davis with Quincy Jones & the Gil Evans Orchestra Live at Montreux Blu-ray

Posted February 21, 2013 05:00 PM by Webmaster

Eagle Rock EntertainmentEagle Rock Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray Miles Davis with Quincy Jones & the Gil Evans Orchestra Live at Montreux. This concert from July 8, 1991 was the last of Miles Davis' many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and took place only a few months before his death. Street date is March 19th.

Despite a defiant "never look back" philosophy, Miles was persuaded by Quincy Jones and Claude Nobs (1936-2013) to take part in this tribute to his great friend Gil Evans, who had passed away in 1988. This truly unique concert was an historical event and a musical triumph, thankfully captured here for posterity.

The line-up for this important performance featured Miles Davis (trumpet). Soloists: Kenny Garrett (saxophone) & Wallace Rooney (trumpet, flugelhorn). Quincy Jones conducting the Gil Evans Orchestra and the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band with the addition of Benny Bailey (trumpet, flugelhorn), Carles Benavent (bass) and Grady Tate (drums).

Miles Davis was a giant of 20th century music and this concert is as much a tribute to him as it is to the late Gil Evan.

I pre-ordered as soon as the pre-order was available on Amazon. I have the original Miles & Quincy VHS and the recent DVD box set of all the Miles Montreux concerts, but look forward to having this one on blu-ray as well. I can say this concert was certainly special and historic in many ways. As a Miles fan, it is interesting to re-realize that when Miles recorded these tunes for the original LPs, he moved on to new directions in music. We all, on the other hand, remained back committing every note to memory. Here all the music is "new" to Miles, and that makes it all the more interesting to view and listen to...
