AN EXTREMELY RARE COLLECTOR'S ITEM: MILES AND TRANE IN TWO COMPLETE SAINT LOUIS RADIO SHOWS. ALMOST UNKOWN LIVE RECORDING.

The present CD comes from two radio broadcasts made in Miles Davis' hometown, Saint Louis, Missouri, during the period prior to John Coltrane's first departure from the band, and marks one of the paradoxically few testimonies of Miles performing in Saint Louis.

The rarity of this document and the high intensity of the music make this an essential issue for all Miles and Trane fans. The quintet demonstrates its high level of performance throughout the recordings, "swinging like crazy", as the MC clearly states at one point of the programs!
