Stockholm 1973 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Konserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden, October 27, 1973. Very good Sveriges Radio TV broadcast.

At this point in time, any well-recorded Miles would be welcomed and this show, taken off a TV broadcast, sounds very good.

According to his autobiography, Miles was already pretty pissed that Columbia Records did not push 1972’s On The Corner the way he felt it should have been (especially to younger listeners). He said: “Just because I was 47 years old in 1973 didn’t mean I was supposed to sit down in some rocking chair and stop thinking about how to keep doing interesting things. I had to do what I was doing if I was going to keep thinking of myself as a creative artist.”

“I would try exploring one chord with this band, one chord in a tune, trying to get everyone to master these small simple things like rhythm. We would take a chord and make it work for five minutes with variations, cross rhythms, things like that.

“And then I was playing over and under and through all of this, and the pianist and bass were playing somewhere else. Everyone had to be alert to what everyone else was doing. At the time Pete (Cosey) gave me that Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters sound that I wanted. I think that could have been a real good band if we had all stayed together, but we didn’t. There was too much happening with my health.”

Thanks to poiuyt for sharing the tracks on the Dime site.

  7. Another BigO gem! I saw this band in Chicago (after 3 cancelled gigs in 1971) and was blown away! Any chance of reposting the companion Rainbow Theatre show from this same tour? Would love to add to my Miles collection.
