| This DVD release presents the only known filmed testimony of the Davis-Shorter-Hancock-Carter-Williams quintet - two historic concerts on DVD for the first time! This is probably the ‘second greatest’ Miles Davis Quintet - after the Coltrane-Kelly-Chambers-Cobb unit. These performances were recorded on a winter tour of Europe in 1967 : the first 5 tracks in Stockholm in October; and the next 5 tracks at Karlsruhe, Germany, in November. This exact line-up had only been together for a year at this time (Ron Carter was the last one to be added) and these outstanding concerts marked the turning point between acoustic & electric Miles - with old favourites like “Around Midnight” and “Walkin’” sitting side by side with newer pieces like “Agitation” (from the “ESP” album) and “Footprints” & “Gingerbread Boy” from “Miles Smiles”, recorded the year before. Total Time : 75 mins. The Miles Davis Quintet played several concerts in Europe in late October-early November 1967as part of the "Newport Jazz Festival in Europe", produced by George Wein. The itinerary was as follows: Oct 28 (Konigin Elizabethzaal, Antwerp), Oct 29 (Hammersmith Odeon, London), Oct 30 (De Doelen, Rotterdam), Oct 31 (Konserthuset, Stockholm), Nov 1 (Kulturhuset, Helsinki), Nov 2 (Tivoli Konsertsal, Copenhagen), Nov 4 (Philharmonie, Berlin), Nov 6 (Salle Pleyel, Paris) and Nov 7 (Stadthalle, Karlsruhe). They shared the stage with Thelonious Monk, Archie Shepp, Gary Burton, Sarah Vaughan and Bob James, among others.
