Thanks to him of course !!

  • Another great performance by Miles, this one sourced from a radio broadcast.
    Good sound except for several to several tens of clipped digital samples per track that create audible clicks or ticks, mostly in the first two tracks.

  4. Two Bass Hit (incomplete) (Lewis-Gillespie) :46


Note: As with apparently all sources, Track 16 is incomplete. However, this recording seems to be even more incomplete than most discographies indicate, ending before the broadcast announcer’s voiceover. It sounds like the CD that was the source for these recordings began skipping, and the track ends prematurely. This version also does not include the radio introduction, that precedes some sources of Track 13.

Not the most complete recording available. Missing (spoken) intro to Four and end of Two Bass Hit.

CD: Rare Live Records RLR 88665

This item was recorded for a December 25, 1957 television broadcast from ORTF, Au clair de la lune. Besides Miles Davis, the 20-minute show featured at least four other artists, including Juliette GrÈco. There are photographs in the ORTF archives (two of which are published in the December 2009 issue of Jazz Magazine) in which the Davis/Urtreger group is playing in front of television cameras, in the midst of a fake lunar landscape: Davis, Michelot, and Clarke in one crater, Urtreger and Wilen in another. These photos are dated December 7, 1957, so this may be the recording date. Thanks to Pascal Rozat for sharing with me the results of his research in the ORTF archives.

Included here twice, once in original form I received it, once remastered as best I could.
