Miles Davis 'Black Beauty: Miles Davis At Fillmore West' 2xLP
180 gram reissue of classic Miles Davis album.
Black Beauty: Miles Davis at Fillmore West is a live double album by American jazz musician Miles Davis. It was recorded at the Fillmore West in San Francisco on April 10, 1970, shortly following the release of his Bitches Brew album and the recording of Jack Johnson (1971). The record was produced by Teo Macero.
A jazz-rock album, Black Beauty captured one of Davis' first performances at a rock venue during the early stages of his electric period. At the concert, he led his band—saxophonist Steve Grossman, bassist Dave Holland, keyboardist Chick Corea, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and percussionist Airto Moreira —through one continuously performed set list which functioned as a musical suite for soloists to improvise throughout. He signaled changes from one piece to the next with phrases played on his trumpet.
Black Beauty was first released only in Japan by CBS/Sony in 1973 without individual songs specified in the track listing. Davis' American label Columbia had difficulty identifying the compositions for royalty purposes, and the record was not released in the United States until 1997.
This is the first time the album has been available on vinyl in several years.
