MILES DAVIS SEPTET
Cologne 1971 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Sartory Festsaal, Cologne, Germany; November 12, 1971. Very good Westdeutscher Radio (WDR) radio broadcast.
After playing a lot of these white rock halls, I was starting to wonder why I shouldnt be trying to get to young black kids with my music. They were into funk, music they could dance to. It took me a while to really get into the concept all the way Jack DeJohnette left the group late in 1971, around the same time Keith Jarrett left. I wanted the drummer to play certain funk rhythms I didnt want the band playing totally free all the time, because I was moving closer to the funk groove in my head. - Miles: The Autobiography
