Miles Davis At Montreux DVD Collection On The Way – And It Is Big!

Happy to see this exciting news about Miles Davis via the always informative anti music.

Back in June, Eagle Rock released a highlights package of Miles Davis ‘Live At Montreux.’ But now they are ready to unveil a whopper of a DVD collection.

Eagle Rock have set an October 24, 2011 release date for The Definitive Miles Davis At Montreux DVD Collection 1973-1991, a massive 10 DVD box set with over 18 hours of performances!

This historically important 10 DVD set captures all of Miles Davis’ performances at the renowned Montreux Jazz Festival between 1973 and 1991, the last being less than three months before his death. It is an unparalleled archive of live Miles Davis performances and is now being released on a visual format for the first time ever.

The final concert from 1991 sees Miles Davis paying tribute to his collaborator and close friend Gil Evans who had died in 1988.

  1. Rest in Peace to Miles, a controversial figure but… where’s the controversy – all his life he sought to make good new music, and succeeded on many occasions thanks to his beautiful tone, melodic lyricism and incredible knack for surrounding himself with new young talents. A genius!

  2. Absoluteley fabulous 10dvd set of Miles Davis shows at Montreux.
    2 questions:
    1-Why they waited so long with this release? This could be released 10 years ago.
    2-Why is the first concert (1973) so short (27 minutes). It’s only 1 song. There must be played more.For the rest: fantastic sound, image is OK en the music is superb!
