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 shouldn’t 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 didn’t want the band playing totally free all the time, because I was moving closer to the funk groove in my head. - Miles: The Autobiography

In 2006, for the first time uploaded on Dime by jkeisers, in 2010 an incomplete version of this show by blacksatin and; also in 2010, the complete one upped by hreinders. It’s a great show in fantastic 1971 audio quality.
