Miles Davis Quintet Featuring Barney Wilen Amsterdam Concert
MDQ Amsterdam.txt

Well, after the banned Joe Henderson's short bootleg, it's my pleasure to offer a nice, good sounding, unautorized show by The Dark Magus with his group featured on 'Lift to the Scaffold' recording.

Amsterdam Concert is a rare live Miles Davis recording from 1957.
This album, one of the least known recordings of Miles Davis, was recorded at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam on Decemeber 8, 1957, a couple of days after the recording of the movie soundtrack Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. On this concert, Miles didn't play with his regular quintet, but with the same line-up he used for the recording of Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. It features Barney Wilen on tenor saxophone, René Urtreger on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums.

One of the least known Miles Davis recordings around, this album contains the complete Amsterdam concert recorded on December 8, 1957 with the talented tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen and the Rene Urtreger Quartet. This recording is 20-bit remastered. 2005.
