The fourth volume in the ongoing Miles Davis live Bootleg Series's Miles Davis at Newport: is a four-disc anthology that brings together all of the legendary trumpeter's live Round Midnight - Miles Davis - At Newport 1955-1975 (The Bootleg Series Vol. 4) captured at the storied Newport Jazz Festival.
Founded by organizer George Wein inthe Newport Jazz Festival grew into one of the premier music festivals in the world, thanks in no small part to Wein 's longstanding association with Davis. With Wein 's support and famous dedication to encouraging artistic experimentation, Davis would return to the festival throughout the most creatively vital years of his career. Although he first appeared at the festival inunbilled, ostensibly as part of an all-star group featuring pianist Thelonious Monk and saxophonist Gerry Mulliganit was his star-making rendition of "'Round Midnight" the microphone buried deep in his trumpet to overcome sound-system issues that landed him a record deal with Columbia and marked his ascent as one of the most innovative and important figures in music history.
Miles Davis at Newport details the association between Davis and the festival, each performance serendipitously documenting 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. As with the previous Bootleg Series sets, many of the tracks on Miles Davis at Newport have been available either officially or unofficially in some configuration for decades. Nonetheless, this collection does contain several previously unreleased cuts, including an epic version of "Stella by Starlight.
Captured just six weeks before the recording sessions for his landmark fusion album Bitches BrewDavis ' True Love - Prins Carl - No Mercy date is a roiling, funky performance, marked by Chick Corea 's dewy Fender Rhodes and Jack DeJohnette 's whirlwind percussion.
By this time, Davis had eschewed the jazz standards-based lyricism of his appearance, favoring instead an open-ended, groove-oriented sound punctuated by the outward squelch of his horn. With Davis ' trumpet slathered in the sticky swell of his wah-wah pedal and his group featuring saxophonist Dave Liebman and others, including not one but two electric guitarists with Pete Cosey and Reggie Lucasthese performances mark the apotheosis of a creative journey that began at Newport two decades earlier.
