Second Edition of Miles Davis Bootlegs Series to Be Released

Miles Davis Quintet — Live in Europe 1969: The Bootleg Series Vol. 2 will be released everywhere on January 29. The compilation, filled with material only previously available in bootleg form, will be the second edition of the Miles Davis Bootleg Series. The record is comprised of performances by Davis’ “Lost Band” featuring Davis, saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Jack DeJohnette. (The group is referred to as “lost” because they never recorded together in the studio.) The Deluxe 3CD + DVD package features recordings from various stops on Davis’ 1969 European tour, including a live performance from Berlin in color. The full tracklist can be viewed below.

The compilation is a follow up to the critically acclaimed 2011 box set Live in Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series Vol. 1, which included recordings of Davis’ “second great quintet” featuring Davis, Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. The album was ranked as 2011’s #1 reissue in both the critics and readers polls of JazzTimes magazine. You can read a review of Miles Davis Quintet — Live in Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series Vol. 1 here.
