Last Miles Davis/John Coltrane performances compiled

1960 European tour recordings finally released.

Jazz collectors, take note: Acrobat has announced All of You: The Last Tour by The Miles Davis Quintet, compiling the final recordings of the trumpeter working alongside saxophone godhead John Coltrane. Coltrane was a longtime member of Davis’ bands, yet had become a reputable bandleader of his own when invited by Davis to play on a European tour in 1960. They were joined by Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums.

Prized bootlegs of these shows long suggested that although the partnership at this point in their respective careers was reluctant and strained, Miles and ‘Trane could still spit a special brand of hot fire together. All of You: The Last Tour collects and remasters six dates’ worth of recordings from private homes and radio broadcasts, including an interview with Coltrane from Sweden. English saxophonist and jazz writer Simon Spillett contributes extensive liner notes. The four disc album is set for a December 2 release; you can check out the track list below.
