Miles Davis at Newport: A Four-Disc Set Coming in July

Columbia/Legacy Recordings is to announce Thursday that it plans to release “Miles Davis at Newport 1955-75: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4” on July 17. A four-disc set of live recordings, it traces the history of Davis’s concerts at the various Newport Festivals — in Newport, R.I., as well as in Berlin; Dietikon, Switzerland; and New York City. (About three-quarters of the tracks have not been commercially released.)

The set includes his complete performance at a festival all-star jam session in 1955, which led to his signing with Columbia; the 1969 concert played shortly before the recording of the studio album “Bitches Brew”; and an appearance in 1975 before a extended hiatus from performing — all of which cemented his status as a Newport mainstay.

Miles Davis' album 'Kind of Blue' (recorded in 1959) is the biggest selling jazz album of all time.

4 million copies sold (as of 10/08').

I fell in love with Kind of Blue, one note at a time. Love it. FYI, for music historians, this was a radical new jazz album in 1959, it was the first album that encompassed changing bars of time. I can't remember exactly what they called it, 4 to 3 or whathave you, but I definitely remember hearing that it was groundbreaking for that reason, and the recording quality for 59, is nothing short of astonishing.

I have a lot of Miles/Coltrane, good good stuff, real good.
