  1. ‘Miles Davis & John Coltrane – The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6’ Out March 23 Available in 4CD boxset and digital configurations, Miles Davis & John Coltrane – The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6 brings together, for the first time in an authorized edition with state-of-the-art production, five mythic concert performances as heard by lucky audiences during the epochal Spring 1960 Jazz At The Philharmonic European Tour. Showcasing the musical chemistry shared by Miles and Trane, The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6 offers five of the best recorded shows from that pivotal 1960 tour (Coltrane’s last as sideman): two shows from Paris’s L’Olympia Theater on Monday, March 21; two shows from the next night at Stockholm’s Konserthuset; and one from Copenhagen’s Tivolis Koncertsal three days later, on March 24.

  4. Alliance Entertainment owns DirectToU, which is the company doing business as Deep Discount, Import CDs, and Collectors Choice. I don't believe Movie Mars is part of that family, but I could be wrong. I've bought a lot from decluttr (and whatever they used to be called) over the years, and my experience is that the quality of discs has gotten a lot worse within the last 12 months or so. I think I am probably done buying from them for a while. Edit: DirectToU also operates the Popmarket site.
