Overview

A four-disc anthology bringing together all of the legendary trumpeter's live recordings captured at the storied festival. Each performance serendipitously documents his ever-morphing sound, from swinging cool jazz in the '50s to aggressive, free jazz-influenced modal bop in the '60s, and finally to funky, acid-soaked fusion in the '70s. The collection does contain several previously unreleased cuts, including an epic 1966 version of "Stella by Starlight." The collection ends with three of Davis' post-Bitches Brew performances, two recorded in Europe in 1971 and 1973 and one at New York's Avery Fisher Hall in 1975. – AllMusic Guide
