MILES DAVIS
Berkeley 1967 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Harmon Gymnasium, University of California, Berkeley, CA; April 7, 1967. Good to very good KALX radio broadcast.

In his autobiography, Miles wrote:

Around this time, Columbia wanted Gil [Evans] and me to do a jazz version of the music from the film Doctor Dolittle. See, Porgy and Bess had been my best-selling album, and so some real dumb motherfucker over there  thought that this Doctor Dolittle would be a great seller. After listening to that shit I said, “No way, Jose.” I took the band along with Gil to Berkeley, California, and we did a concert there and added a big band. [This was the 1968 festival.]

However, Miles did not mention the Berkeley concert in 1967. This is a comment on the show posted at allaboutjazz.com: “The only live recording of Dolores by this group, and the last known recording of Stella By Starlight.”

Thanks to jkeisers who shared the tracks on the net in 2006.

This is what jkeisers noted:

There are two versions of this concert in circulation: an audience recording with the complete concert, and a radio broadcast without the stage introduction and without the tune Agitation. This is the radio broadcast. The sound quality of this radio broadcast is quite good. This is an essential item for people interested in the music of the Second Quintet. It is an exciting and spectacular concert.

  5. If you like these recordings, you owe it to yourself to seek out “Live in Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 1″ by this stellar quintet. It contains a DVD that will give fans chills!

  8. Anyone know if he played on April 12th of 1967 and if the show is circulating? I’d love to make a copy for a good friend who was born on that day.

  9. Glad to have this! And another shout out for the Live In Europe release - it’s fantastic and the DVD is worth the price of admission. Tony Williams is as mesmerizing to watch as he is to listen to.
