If you are going to change your music, you gotta change your band - Miles Davis.
From the label that brought you Miles Davis: The Lost Quintet comes the follow up album and next in this amazing trilogy Miles Davis: The Lost Septet! On a Double CD!
The Lost Septet, this 7 piece never recorded in the studio but we are lucky that they did a European tour in October/ November 1971... this is one of the best performances from Wiener Konzerthaus, in Vienna, Nov 5th.
Miles last recording in the studio was the Jack Johnston album although he was still going through more changes in music, slowly moving on to more of a rock sound than jazz and his friendship with Jimi Hendrix was a big influence. We were as intense as any rock band and just as loud .. Gary Bartz.
Miles was playing music on this tour from various albums.. In a Silent Way , Bitches Brew also Jack Johnston and his soon to be released Live Evil which was made up of studio and live tracks from the Cellar Door gig, which was released the day before the final tour date in Nov 17th 1971.
The band now had more of a Rock background and Miles was playing with a wah wah pedal as it made him sound more like a guitar and where in the older days he played in the middle register he heard more high notes, Miles playing style would reflex that.
