Short but very sweet BBC broadcast by Beckett’s S&R Powerhouse Section from 1974 in superb sound. Recommended !

Interestingly, not an original but picked up recently as a new reissue. Other than the  shrink-wrap you would be hard pressed to distinguish from a Mainstream orig. Probably on better vinyl as well. I’m assuming that this was put out by BGP/Ace but doesn’t say.

Another new one.

And definitely ‘of its time’ aka 1974. Needs to be played with the imminent threat of a power cut !

I love a lot of those old afro cuban stuff. Didn´t know about this, I recently had listened to one by Machito and his Crew titled "Blen Blen Blen" .....

Archie Shepp, Parisian Concert Volume 1 (Impro)

From about what period is it, late 70´s ? I don´t have that but have one from that mini-label "Impro" which is dedicated to Bird "Bird Fire" with his working quartet he had then: German-French pianist Siegfried Kessler, Bob Cunningham and Clifford Jarvis. (Lover Man, Au Privave, Parker´s Mood, Now´s the Time). 

I saw that group in spring 1979 and it was one of the greatest live concerts I saw. Something I still remember 40 years later.

October 18, 1977 at the Palais de Glaces. Cameron Brown on bass, Clifford Jarvis on drums, and Siegfried Kessler on piano. An excellent recording.

This was a classic when I was at high School. Those Italian LPs were legendary , "Here is Miles Davis at his rare of all rarest Performances" (Kings of Jazz Series). 

Actually it´s a very boppish Miles from 1951 at Birdland, on Side 1 with J.J.Johnson, Sonny Rollins, Kenny Drew, Tommy Potter and Art Blaker (really an All Star Band), and on Side 2 also an Allstar Band Miles with Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Big Nick Nicholas (on the Album cover wrong: Sonny Rollins), Billie Taylor, Charles Mingus, Art Blakey. 

The tunes is: "Half Nelson"  "Mike´s Blues" (wrong title, the tune is "Down"), "The Squirrel" and "Move". 

This is Miles playing very high Register and fast. Like Diz or Fats. I think, he is really very strong here and this is first class be bop. 

The Album...….. then more than 40 years ago we just said "The Red Miles Davis Album"...…. Play that "Red Miles Davis Album" again…..

It looks like this was all released on cd by Blue Note as "Birdland 1951" (Blue Note 41779) along with a previously unreleased date from Feb 17, 1951-- my 8th Birthday.

@medjuck: You are Right: Now the best way to listen to it is the Blue Note CD, because it also has a second unreleased set from the first band, and the unreleased "Lady Bird" with the Big Nicholas-Lockjaw Tenor Tandem. 

But for nostalgic reasons I still spin sometimes the "Red Miles Davis Album". If I want to listen the the whole Music, I listen to the CD. 

 

Hey, here´s another one from that series: Miles with Stan Getz from february 1950, also at Birdland, featuring also J.J. Johnson, Tadd Dameron, Gene Ramey and of Course Art Blakey. I don´t know if this set was issued on CD also. Anyway, this is  an LP from the same obscure Italian Label "Kings of Jazz" and the title is "Here are Miles Davis and Stan Getz at their rare of all rarest Performances". We called this "The Grey Miles DAvis Album". So, you had to listen to the red and the gray Miles DAvis album:D

It's a little hard to tell, but Birdland Days features Getz and Miles at Birdland in 1950.  Perhaps most of that LP can be found on this compilation.

Then there is another PD variant called Move, which also has a lot of the same material.

Oh thank you. I´m sure this must be the same session I have on the italian LP. Those live sessions from Miles from the early 50´s all are really treasures and it´s completly different to the "Birth of the Cool", it´s pure be-bop. I have the Juni 1950 sessions with J.J. Johnson and Brew Moore, the Miles-Stan Getz also 1950, the 1951 stuff and one CD which has 2 sessions one from 1948 with Lee Konitz at the Roost and 1952 with Jackie McLean from Birdland. A lot of Hours of early Miles live. Not to Forget the 1949 Paris stuff.

:D  Even when listening to nothing but jazz, you all were obviously influenced heavily by the typical Beatles record "lingo" of the day. :lol:

Since Im absolutly an ignorant with all what´s not jazz , I don´t really know what it was with the Beatles, but I think what you want to explain to me is how we boys in highschool swapped records or someone borrowed you the record and you made a cassete recording out of it.

During intermissions when we went down in the school court to smoke (yeah that´s how it was) this guy and that guy came to you and asked "Do you already have ....... this, that ?

I´ll never forget about "Filles de Kilimanjaro". I thought that means "Vieles vom Kilimanjaro" . And our no knowlegde of french and mixed with that "terrible Viennese Slang" they said "hast Du schon die Fil-les de Killi-Mann-Tscharo" ?

"Jo host aaa scho dä Fiees of Kiliman-dscha-roh ghööärt?":D (or something like this ;))

No, what I alluded to was that two of the seminal Beatles albums released by EMI in the 70s were the "Red Album" and the "Blue Album" (both twofers) that chronicled as a sort of in-depth "Best-Of " the earlier and later periods of the Beatles. Basically they were compilations or "samplers" but in fact their status elevated them more to full-blown, almost "cult" Beatles releases among teenage fans. Known anywhere, by anybody, even beyond hardcore Beatles fandom.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967%E2%80%931970

(Incidentally, EMI cashed in on that "red" and "blue" album idea for other reissues in that period too)

It is available via Amazon but at more than $70.  Anyone know a more reasonable way to get it? (Maybe the only Miles I don't have. ) 

Just found it and ordered it from Discogs.
