What It Is: Montreal 7/7/83 (2LP)

Miles DavisSKU: 19439955761



EXTRAS: RSD 2022, Limited to 1500

This double LP release includes one of Miles Davis’ final great bands including John Scofield on guitar, Bill 'The Other Bill Evans' Evans on saxophones, flute and electric piano, Darryl Jones on bass, Al Foster on drums and percussionist Mino Cinelu.

Miles was back in amazing form, when he mounted the stage at the Theatre St-Denis during the Festival International De Jazz De Montrealin July 1983 and this release is the first time this revelatory performance will be released.

What It Is includes tracks from that year’s release Star People, the Marcus Miller tune Hopscotch and the song Jean-Pierre that appeared on 1982’s We Want Miles. The recordings of What It Is and That’s What Happened were so well thought of by Miles that he utilised them for his 1984 release Decoy, but in heavily edited form and this release would include the first release of them in complete form.
