In the 1960s Miles Davis toured Europe several times with some of the greatest bands he ever led. As the first title in a projected series of boxed sets Sony/Legacy introduces Miles Davis Quintet - Live In Europe 1967 - The Bootleg Series Vol.1, featuring Miles Davis’ “Second Great Quintet” featuring Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams -- arguably the single greatest small group ensemble in jazz history.

The recordings from their 1967 European tour are some of the only existing documentation of the band performing compositions from the extraordinary series of studio albums they made between 1965-1967 -- E.S.P., Miles Smiles, Sorcerer and Nefertiti. Now fans can hear live versions of “Agitation” (from E.S.P.), “Footprints" and "Gingerbread Boy” ( from Miles Smiles), “Masquelero" (from Sorcerer ) and “Riot" (from Nefertiti); plus, Miles revisits some of the earlier classics he had been performing for years -- “Round Midnight”, “On Green Dolphin Street”, I Fall In Love Too Easily” and “No Blues” -- all in strikingly different interpretations from the original studio versions. Seeing this band in action only further emphasizes their near supernatural rapport! From the Label
