Miles-Davis--John-Coltrane-cover-artwork-Bootleg-Series-Vol-6

The widely acclaimed Miles Davis Bootleg Series issues its sixth instalment with Miles Davis & John Coltrane – The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series Vol.6, a 4CD to be released by Columbia/Legacy on 23 March 2018. It includes five of the best-recorded European concerts from the important 1960 period with the two jazz giants at the peak of their powers, still exploring the music of the recently recorded, and epoch-defining, Kind of Blue.

These shows were among the last Coltrane performed as a sideman, with two of the concerts recorded at Paris's L'Olympia Theater on Monday 21 March; two shows from the next night at Stockholm's Konserthuset and one from Copenhagen's Tivolis Koncertsal three days later on 24 March 1960. The band also includes key personnel from the Kind of Blue sessions: pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb. 'So What' and 'All Blues' appear here alongside Davis hits such as ''Round Midnight', 'Bye Bye Blackbird', 'On Green Dolphin Street', 'Walkin'', 'All Of You' and 'Oleo'. The set concludes with a rare interview with John Coltrane conducted by Swedish DJ Carl-Erik Lindgren.

Originally broadcast on European radio in March 1960, these shows have been available on various unofficial releases over the years but this is the first time they've been officially released by Davis' record company. This collection has been authorised by the Miles Davis Estate, the John Coltrane Estate and Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings. Produced by the multi-Grammy winning team of producers Steve Berkowitz, Michael Cuscuna and Richard Seidel, the recordings have been mastered by multi-Grammy winning Sony Music engineer Mark Wilder, who worked on other sets in the Bootleg series. The 4CD set also includes an extensive essay by music historian Ashley Khan and will also be available as a digital download and a single 12" LP.
