6/20/24 O&A NYC THROWBACK THURSDAY: Miles Davis – Live in Germany 1988 (Munich Philharmonic Concert Hall)


When Miles Davis first went back on the road in June 1981, his band had no idea what they were going to play. Rehearsals had been almost non-existent and there was no set list. On stage, you never knew what was coming next. The performance was one of complete spontaneity and improvisation. But gradually, Miles’s performances became more structured.


The concert was recorded by German TV. At the time, Miles’ band comprised of Miles on trumpet and keyboards; Foley lead bass; Robert Irving III and Adam Holzman keyboards; Kenny Garrett saxophone and flute, Benny Rietveld bass, Ricky Wellman drums and Marilyn Mazur on percussion – Mazur had originally joined Miles’s band in 1985 and left the following year.
