On October 24, Miles started his second European tour of 1973,
this time produced by George Wein as "Newport Jazz festival in
Europe". The band opened with two shows in Malmö, Sweden.

There exists an audience recording of this concert, and there
are two different broadcast recordings of this show. Both radio
broadcasts were incomplete. This is Broadcast #1:
More than two minutes of "Turnaroundphrase", and approximately
11 minutes of "Ife" are missing.

*) Miles discographer Jan Lohmann uses "Unknown C" for this tune,
and "Untitled Original C" for later incarnations of it. I think
that his "Unknown C" and "Untitled Original C" are both variations
of the same tune. I prefer Enrico Merlin's use of "Tatu" here,
but most people will be more familiar with Mr. Losin's naming
convention ("Funk [Prelude part 1]"), because his discography
can be found on-line. Strangely enough, Mr. Losin omits this tune,
and only mentions "Right Off (8:49)".
