Paste magazine usually focuses solely on alternative and emerging rock music, but occassionally there is a tasty treat on their web pages for jazz fans. Their "Video Vault" today features a video of Miles Davis performing at Tanglewood in the Berkshires area of Massachusetts on August 18. 1970. The show was part of Bill Graham's "The Fillmore at Tangelwood" series and included Santana and The Voices of East Harlem. Click here for a look.
The formidable band for this now legendary performance included Davis (trumpet); Gary Bartz (sax); Chick Corea (electric piano); Keith Jarrett (organ); Dave Holland (bass and electric bass); Jack De Johnette (drums); and Airto Moreira (percussion).
There is apparently a DVD version of this around called "Miles Davis: Tanglewood Wizard".
