Miles Second Quintet 1964
William E Donoghue | Healdsburg CA USA | 10/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the wonderful 1960s quintet with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. It was a TV show and is in very good shape soundwise. It's an ideal complement to the Jazz Icons series that Reelin' In The Years has release. This is the new Quintet with the old repertoire. There is a European Tour 1965 TV show from the same source but a year later with the new repertoire."
Great Show- Bad Quality

The Miles Davis Quintet plays
a really good show on this DVD-
the music is fantastic!

But the image quality is horrible.
This was taken from a vintage TV broadcast,
and not much has been done to fix it up.

The picture is watchable-
but at times it looks fuzzy and compressed,
with little pixels that make it look like
it was downloaded off the internet!

If Miles Davis wasn't on this disc
I would have only given it one star.

Astonishing music
Bob | Arco, Idaho United States | 12/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is a rare opportunity to watch what was perhaps history's greatest jazz group play a set in 1964. The music is nothing short of astonishing and breathtaking.
Yes, as the other reviewers stated, the filming and sound are below the level of current DVD releases. But come on (!) this is 1964. It is certainly viewable and listenable. Maybe if you're watching it on a huge panel, flat-screen TV with surround sound where you can see and hear all of the imperfections you'll be bothered.
I just watched the whole concert on a computer screen, and I wasn't bothered in any way whatsoever.
If you like this band, this one is a no-brainer. It is some of the best music I've ever seen performed in my life.
The band is playing standards (Autumn Leaves, My Funny Valentine, All Blues, Joshua, All of You, Joshua). This is before they changed direction, with the ESP album. They are stretching, particularly on Wayne's and Herbie's solos.
What a treat to watch this band at work."
Prime time Era Miles | usa | 05/02/2008

"this was Miles Davis with Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, wayne Shorter and Ron Carter. Prime time Miles Davis and the band was on Point. Miles was so Productive and Prolific during this particular time period. hard to believe this is the same man who only a few years later would go fully into electric fusion and change his whole musical direction. but this time period captures another very important time period in his creativity."
