Miles Davis Live at the Plugged Nickel, now available for the first time in a deluxe five LP box set with liner notes. This box represents the most complete version available on vinyl of the Miles Davis Quintet's legendary Plugged Nickel performance. Twenty tracks in all with almost four hours of music taken from the seven sets Davis played during his two-night residency at Chicago's famous Plugged Nickel jazz club. It was also one of the very first recordings Miles made with his now legendary 'second' quintet, featuring Wayne Shorter on tenor, a 25-year-old Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums. For these performances, Davis played almost no material from his albums, focusing instead on his favorite standards. However, it is precisely because he is playing standards that listeners are able to hear just how groundbreaking this quintet was at the time. The music found here was so pioneering and influential that it still sounds new after over four decades! Do not miss your chance to own this piece of jazz history on vinyl.
