LIVE IN EUROPE 1969 lives up to the Miles Davis Bootleg Series mission of presenting live performances that are previously unreleased, have previously only been bootlegged, or are very rare. This new set is the first collection of Miles’s Third Great Quintet, the “Lost” Band of 1968-1970 with Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette at their peak (they were never recorded in the studio). The album captures the short-lived quintet in three separate concert settings, starting with two full-length (one hour-plus) sets at the Antibes Jazz Festival in France, in Stockholm as part of “The Newport Jazz Festival In Europe,” and completed with a stunning 46-minute performance at the Berlin Philharmonie, filmed in color.

The repertoire spans the widest range Miles ever played; from ‘Round Midnight and Milestones, to I Fall In Love Too Easily and No Blues, to Footprints and Nefertiti, to Bitches Brew and Spanish Key, and much more, all in re-imagined new versions or first time professional recordings. Includes live versions of several songs only previously heard in their studio versions. The rare, mostly acoustic set from Stockholm includes a bonus track version of Chick Corea’s “This” in its only professional recording by Miles.
