Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

232 posts in this topic

Just wanted to thank you for the help with the pre-order price link.  Much appreciated.  I have all of this already but hoping for the best sound upgrade myself.  Excited for this since I've been reading Richard Cook's It's About That Time book this week.

Anyone else joined Vinyl me please for the Miles Paris Bootleg? Joined in December and received Miles's Sorcerer and was surprised how much I enjoyed.

Looking forward to this being available to order on Feb  1st. Going to wait and see on complete cd box set as I have Dragon release and its sounds good to my ears.

We were just talking about this on Facebook.

Hank with Miles is Blackhawk, Carnegie and Someday My Prince. But Hank was in the band from late 1960 to late 1962, apparently. Are there really no other recordings with Mobley? Not even an audience boot?

Let's no even talk about the band with Strozier...

Well, of COURSE there is!

I think I only lisened to it once due to tape flutter or something. That and it's essentially the same shit as all the other such gigs.

oh wait, it IS the same as the other such gigs, no wonder. But also no wonder, that band did not present an infinite variety of expressions, if you know what I mean.

What about the band with Jimmy Heath, wasn't he in there for a quick minute post-Mobley?

He told Wayne Shorter not to let me interview him -- his actual hoarse words at the Plugged Nickel were "Don't tell him anything, Wayne!" This startled  the hell out of me -- my back was turned -- but little did I know that at least by that time Wayne wasn't inclined to obey Miles' orders, if he ever was. The next day we did the interview (actually it was a virtual monologue on Wayne's part) that lasted about ninety minutes. Because it was a virtual monologue, we printed it under Wayne's name and paid him for it (this was at Down Beat in 1969, when I was the new kid there).

He was in quite briefly pre-Mobley, 1959, but was told by his probation officer that he couldn’t travel with the band. I’m pretty certain he at least played the French Lick jazz festival here in Indiana with Miles in late summer 1959. But was he also on board again at all during the undocumented 1962 J.J. Johnson period?

.Perhaps that was Hank:

Yeah, starting here

J.J. Johnson: Trombone - Miles Davis: Trumpet - Hank Mobley: Sax

 

There's some really cool photos of this sextet in action. The Birdhouse, Chicago September 1961, it says.

Hank Mobley: Tenor Sax -- Philly Joe Jones: Drums -- Birdhouse - Chicago IL - September 1961

Maybe just maybe that band  with Hank and JJ if anything existed would be released in a future volume I wonder.  I would think a radio station somewhere would have taped a few gigs.  That'd be interesting, but so far it seems they are sticking with things like the Second Quintet, Trane.  When I interviewed Vince and Erin in 2015, they did say they go through a lot of tapes and have rejected a lot of things.

Just received Paris vinyl from vinyl  me please.

Played first two sides and very impressed with sound. Rhythm section is tight. Miles’s solos are pure Miles. Trane’s solos are long and so good.

Now thinking about buying Copenhagen on vinyl or the CD box.

Have any of the live recordings that have been released in this series NOT been either recorded by Columbia or already widely circulated?

You know, not sure.  I think most of it probably has.  I don't think anything in the Live in Europe 1967 box was recorded by Columbia, but they were widely circulated.  I'd have to check the Losin discography.

This box's release date is this Friday.  Amazon UK has not charged my card yet.  I'll let you know what my price is when they do.  I suppose all Americans here will be charged the same (the lowest pre-order price) but each of us my have different currency exchange charges.
