Miles Davis Live At Montreux Coming To DVD

Eagle Rock have announced a June 21st DVD release date for Miles Davis Live At Montreux Highlights 1973-1991.

The late legend Miles Davis singlehandedly changed the course of jazz history to bring it closer to funk and rock, confounding the critics and all who came before him. He remained a reclusive figure, enigmatic and indefinable both onstage and off. Now, for the first time, Eagle Rock Entertainment has collected the "Highlights" of his numerous headline appearances at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland

Taken from seven performances over the course of 18 years, it's a mind-bending time-travel that shows the chameleon-like tenacity that Miles brought to his ever-evolving sound. With Miles, the only constant was change. From his debut 1973 performance of "Ife" to his final appearance in 1991 where he looked back unsentimentally at one of his greatest moments, Sketches Of Spain, the 1960 collaboration with producer Gil Evans, each performance is as varied and different as can be.

The 11-year silence between the '73 debut and the '84 comeback only makes the '84 performance all the more dramatic. Then comes a flurry of activity. He hit the Montreux stage in '85, '86, '89, '90 and, only months before his death, in 1991. Representative highlights from all those years are included. Also included is an interview with Miles disciple Carlos Santana.

This one is a must-own for music fans of all stripes! Eagle Rock will also release the Miles Davis Definitive Montreux DVD boxed set later this year.
