LDS 047: Miles Davis Sextet featuring Stan Getz mega-rare restored LP “A Very Special Concert” Birdland, NYC 1950-02-18
*Miles Davis at ‘Just Jazz’ concert, Los Angeles, 1950
One of the rarest Miles Davis recordings in circulation, this restore is one of the most prized recordings I have ever obtained and it brings us great pleasure to share with all of you an era in which Miles was taking Europe by storm and as the video at the bottom states, he was the Godfather of jazz. Enjoy!
The original notes from audio restoration master Doinker:
Miles Davis Sextet Featuring Stan Getz – Mega-rare Restored LP “A Very Special Concert” Birdland, NYC 1950-02-18 speed-corrected and rejoined (whadya know… that’s today!) SB great show (mp3 sample included)
From the great Boris Rose collection, here’s one that isn’t listed as being released. According to the great jazz site Jazzdisco.org, the only source for this material is this album and two Italian bootleg copies. According to Amazon.com, the only Miles Davis Birdland material is from the following year. Hopefully there’s no other commercial release I can’t find, so here goes!
