Miles Davis - Isle Of Wight

Saturday 12 May BBC Radio 3 broadcasted a 30-minute documentary on Miles's 1970 Isle of Wight concert. It's part of a series called "Concerts That Changed Jazz" and is presented by the highly respected jazz critic John Fordham. It'll be on Radio 3's website for a week after transmission. Next week it's  Keith Jarret's Koln Concert.

Miles Davis studio recordings 1965-1969

Jarno Kukkonen has written an article "Elements of Early Rock-Jazz Fusion
on Miles Davis's Studio Recordings 1965-1969," which is based on his PhD
thesis. He explores Miles's electric music, and at the end, includes
breakdowns of the various elements (whether the piece includes melody in
the bass, pedal point, post production edits, odd or changing meter etc)
within Miles's various works, plus some notational examples. It's in the form of a Pdf file and it's available at: http://www.siba.fi/attach/alusta_0104.pdf

Miles Davis on WNYC

Got this in the mailbox and maybe of interest to you :

From his relationship with Charlie Parker to drug abuse and his often violent personality, the debate is not one to be missed by both enthusiasts and those new to jazz alike.

will also include music from the Big Fun and Get Up With It albums
