Wall to Wall Miles Davis 2001 [no label, Disc 1 and 2 of 8]

Live at the Symphony Space, New York, NY; March 24, 2001. Excellent FM broadcast.

Thanks to GUITARS for sharing this at Dime; and to lilioriverio and abbcccus for keeping the show alive since 2007.

Bill Milkowski posted the following at in 2001:

One of the great gifts that New York music lovers cherish each year is the gala Wall to Wall marathon that takes place at Symphony Space, the Upper West Side bastion of innovative programming. A free event that has been going strong since 1978, Wall to Wall focuses on presenting the music of a single artist for a span of 12 consecutive hours-noon until midnight-in the acoustically impeccable 800-seat theater.

Past celebrants have included such iconic figures as Bach, Brahms and Beethoven from the classical world, Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George and Ira Gershwin from the American songbook along with such cutting-edge visionaries as John Cage, Charles Ives and Kurt Weill. The only jazz artist previously feted was Duke Ellington, who received his Wall to Wall celebration in 1991.

This year, Symphony Space co-founder and artistic director Isaiah Sheffer along with curator Bill Bragin chose Miles Davis as their Wall to Wall honoree. Few other figures in jazz history, with the exception of Ellington and Charles Mingus, have produced such a remarkably varied body of work as Davis. And for this 12-hour Miles marathon, the full scope of his chameleonic career-bebop, cool, modal, orchestral, fusion, funk, hip-hop-was well represented by a rotating cast of jazz all-stars.

  7. Question for anybody other than Darth…

    what does the link of Ray Kennedy!s death have to do with this fine tribute show of miles davis…?

    thanks to all involved for bringing it here…!

    By Jerry's Finger on Feb 19, 2014

  8. it was the closest recent jazz related posting on here where i thought ppl who knew him and who know miles’ music might be the same. it isnt rocket science. cmon. figure this out.

    By darth on Feb 19, 2014

  9. ^zzzzzzzzzz….

    thought the request was someone else besides the clown darth answer my question…? guess the resident clown ego cant read to well & its obvious he’s no rocket scientist the poor boy…

    got it that…yes the connection is there for sitting in what a night with the Duke & Krupa bands at some point when he was what maybe 12 or 13 yrs old… but not a jazz pure artist per se…

    but whats the connection to this miles davis tribute as i initially asked…?

    By Jerry's Finger on Feb 19, 2014

  10. but whats the connection to this miles davis tribute as i initially asked…?

    i was online ?

  11. @ Jerrys finger
    what does the link of Ray Kennedy!s death have to do with this fine tribute show of miles davis…?

    Man there are all kinds of reasons for that post to be here - as someone else said it isnt rocket science. cmon. figure this out.
    lets see

    1. they were both musicians
    2. their names have almost the same number of letters
    3 they are both dead
    4. Kennedy started his career as a regular on Dick Clark’s ‘American Bandstand,’ eventually graduating to the member of the “band” who’d mime the saxophone parts of the performers’ songs
    whereas Miles Davis moved to New York City to study at the Juilliard School of Music. Finally locating his idol, Charlie Parker, Davis became one of the cadre of musicians who held nightly jam sessions at two of Harlem’s nightclubs, Minton’s Playhouse and Monroe’s.
    The similarities are uncanny!
    5. Miles Davis is someone that everyone might not like or appreciate but everyone knows his name and that he was a major figure in Jazz while Ray Kennedy isnt even the most famous Ray Kennedy out there..

    see dude its not Rocket science - see Rocket science has to make sense and this well doesn’t………..

    By dwight on Feb 19, 2014

  12. well leon russell and delaney bramlett were both in the shindig house band so there goes your rocket science they weren`t even mentioned.

    By online darth on Feb 19, 2014

  13. @dwight…

    LMFAO….right…you got it bro…!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Feb 19, 2014

  14. You are right - Leon and Delaney were not mentioned - so shy bring them up now either?
    But since you did, Leon and Delaney actually played their instruments and were accomplished musicians - they were members of the wrecking crew - who performed not only as the Shindig House band but on countless recording sessions and not pretending to play the saxaphone on bandstand.
    But even if lets just say Leon died - or if Delaney came back to life - what would the point of posting about it on this Miles Davis post be? hmmmmmm - yeah I can’t think of any good reason either

    Ok maybe if Delaney came back to life… that would be pretty cool, and Miles did record Birth of the Cool - I think we might all think that was a good enough reason.
    But not really.

    By dwight on Feb 19, 2014

  15. but leon and delaney didnt just die so there would be no reason to mention them. and theyre also not jazz.

    By darth on Feb 20, 2014

  16. but leon and delaney didnt just die so there would be no reason to mention them. and theyre also not jazz.

    LEON NOT JAZZ ????
    go here for “Stop All That Jazz” c`mon darth you are really slipping lately..first online in 1976 and now this ..


    By dropkick sarge on Feb 20, 2014

  17. This is really OUTSTANDING. Will you post any more of it? Thanks.

    By Niles on Feb 20, 2014

  18. no leon isnt jazz. he may have done some jazzy material for a bit but he isnt jazz. did u know he was with paul revere and the raiders in 1960-61 or so? i would hasten to put him more in the r&b and soul categories than jazz if i had to pigeonhole him at all. his tenure with cocker just prior to the mad dogs and englishmen era where he got the nickname master of time and space surely wasnt a jazz originated name. that afformentioned tour surely wasnt a jazz outfit that many many 1000s of people went to see and is likely one of his most famous periods. how should a man be identified? not with his most known output? or perhaps with what he is most proud of? perhaps what he is most remembered for when he passes? if he died today.. that very well could be the pairing with him and elton john a couple of years ago. how would u label that? would u honestly call that jazz? i wouldnt. in fact.. i would prefer to call it britfolk. english folk music is very different than american folk music and while leon is nothing similar to fotheringay or rennaisance or richard thompson or the amazing band he was with fairport convention.. and nothing like sandy denny etc. theres plenty of leeway for other artists to lend their slant on things and i think leon surely fits in there.
    but jazz? no.
    but again.. leon didnt die. ray kennedy did.

    By darth on Feb 22, 2014

  19. what the hell Darth listen & follow your own argument premise you just presented about Leon…

    & again what the hell does Ray Kennedy’s death have to do with a miles davis tribute…?

    im not going to go all over it again because you ain’t going to learn what you don’t want to know…!!!

    cant say anything to you a challenged individual…!!!

    you just felt like sticking a link somewhere didnt you…? why not post it to that fine duke studio outtakes from cherry hill 1970 that was just presented here a few weeks ago…? that would have more validity there than here…

    but its all about you…you how much you can write…how much you can say…how many I’s I’d me mine myself i can type in a post…

    yes you & your convoluted thoughts…just because i can…

    what a floater…!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Feb 22, 2014

  20. Thanks Darth…I actually was familiar with Ray Kennedy, but not intimate enough to realize he’d passed away. Actually a pretty damn good talent through the years.


    By Randolph on Feb 22, 2014

  21. ^ edit to add correction:

    i meant dizzy not duke above with the “approaches to olinga” out takes from cherry hill.

    By Jerry's Finger on Feb 22, 2014

  22. fantastic!!! Thank you!!!

    By Paul on Mar 10, 2014

  23. Thanks for posting this — I was there 12 years ago and have such fond memories of it. Producer Bill Bragin followed up with the Campbell Bros. playing “A Love Supreme” last weekend — you can see it here:
