Great video of Miles playing with sextet and Evans orchestra.
24 April 2008 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I don't understand how the average score can be so low, while this is one of the few recordings of him playing in that time, with great audio and video quality. If you're into jazz (of this period, of these fabulous players) then I advice you to watch this. The first song So What is to my opinion the most amazing, especially by the explosive solo of Coltrane. Funny to see the expressions on the faces of the other musicians standing around, not knowing what to make of it, while Coltrane is making acrobatic sound figures. The orchestra part with Gil Evans is also interesting. They play The Duke (Brubeck) Blues for Pablo (Evans) New Rhumba (Jamal).
