4 stars Derived from two live sets about a year apart - one from 1969, one from 1970 - this album focuses on Miles' and his groups' performances of Bitches Brew material in the wake of completing that album. It forms an intriguing missing link between Bitches Brew itself and the more overtly funk-influenced fusion material which followed it, with the material gaining a swagger here which the more ethereal performances on the original studio album don't really convey. The two performances by themselves wouldn't necessarily add up to much, but sequencing them one after the other is a great way to tease out how the material evolved and mutated in the live context.
Warthur | 4/5 |
