No setlist - need help please. This show is not listed on the Miles Ahead website, so it's either somewhat uncirculated or is listed with a different date. Since there was a show in Nagoya the previous day (with an audience recording) and it does include a Japanese announcer at the end this information does seem possible. It sounds like a radio broadcast to me since the light background static is consistent for the entire show, but it really is of "unspecified lineage". Some track ID's may be inaccurate due to my unfamiliarity with the material. I searched through all Miles Davis releases and could not find anything that looked like it might be this, so hopefully it really is what it's labeled as.

CD: 68:15
Track 1 10:25
Track 2 19:58
Track 3 17:57
Track 4 19:28
Track 5 announcer outro + crowd noise 0:27

Sound quality is very good to excellent and the background static is mostly barely noticeable. Check the sample to hear for yourself.
