Wall to Wall Miles Davis 2001 [no label, Disc 3 and 4 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.

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.

  6. I’m sure Miles wouldn’t mind the digression… even if he were alive. Anyway, one of the great ongoing American musical pleasures to be had is seeing the PHJB AT Preservation Hall in New Orleans. I had no taste for the genre (idiot that I was) until I saw them play in front of me - and from then on, I was hooked. The best place to hear trad jazz in the whole wide world. Fabulous! My ears done seen the light, y’might say…
