Recorded for radio, and remastered from the master tapes, this release has never been on vinyl until now, and you can only get it from Vinyl Me, Please Classics. Read below for a video explaining the album, pics, and an excerpt from the Listening Notes booklet by Ashley Kahn. The performances on this album, The Final Tour: Paris, March 21, — released here officially on vinyl for the first time—are as renowned for their emotional intensity as they are for their musical fervor. The common judgement is that this concert found a great jazz ensemble—the Miles Davis Quintet of —audibly straining to hold itself together stylistically, its members moving in divergent directions, their music unable to hide an inner turmoil between the musicians—to the point that the audience responded to it, clearly and audibly. He gave me notice he would be leaving the group when we got home. An equally convincing interpretation of these performances from is that Miles and his quintet were redefining what a great band could sound like, and how much music it could contain—at one time, in one concert, even in one tune. Bring your identity and your own ideas to the mix.

The audible friction between Davis and Coltrane on almost every number of this four-disc set makes for a fascinating listen, a live document of two players undergoing tectonic shifts in their style. By , modern jazz was in upheaval. This shift was thanks in no small part to the seismic, artistic advances that Miles Davis and his quintet had made the year prior when he released Kind of Blue , a still-astonishing document of restraint and free melodic expression that would go on to become one of the best-selling jazz albums of all-time. Distinct from the restrained and cool sound of his boss, Coltrane was well on his own skyward trajectory when Davis brought him back to the fold for a European tour booked by jazz impresario Norman Granz, which also featured Stan Getz on tenor sax and Oscar Peterson on piano. It marked the first time Davis would tour with his own band, and they were met with packed houses and rapturous applause each night. But none bear the audible friction between Davis and Coltrane on almost every number of this four-disc set, which draws from two concerts in Paris, two from Stockholm, and one from Copenhagen. You can hear the sideman straining to push past Davis—the man primarily responsible for realizing that Coltrane could be Coltrane.

Coltrane had been a sideman with Davis on and off since ; they were both born in , but their careers took drastically different paths. Davis was already a minor star in , at the age of nineteen, when he recorded with Charlie Parker. Three years later, at twenty-two, he led a nonet, featuring intricate arrangements, that proved vastly influential. With Davis, Coltrane quickly found his voice, and expanded it during a stint in with Thelonious Monk. Adderley left in the fall of , and Coltrane was feeling his oats. Davis actually hired him—in He spent most of the time looking out the window and playing Oriental-sounding scales on soprano.

The mood was tense in the backstage area of the illustrious Olympia Theater in central Paris. Fresh out of the legendary Kind of Blue recording sessions, the group led by the seminal jazz trumpeter was expected to be tighter than ever.

This is the sound of two geniuses pulling apart and heading in different directions. They may have returned to the States at the same terminus, but Coltrane and Davis landed on different planets afterwards. You can hear that in the above video. Kind of Blue had been released the year before--imagine a time where that was the case! The concerts have been endlessly bootlegged, and rightly so. They are stunning. Several were recorded for radio broadcast, others went into the hands of collectors.
