All About Jazz informs us of this very important release.

AAJ says, “Four decades later, it remains the great game changer, the genre- bending, barrier-smashing double LP that would become Miles Davis’ first RIAA gold album, and influence two—three! (so far)—generations of jazz and rock musicians to come. Released in April of 1970, Bitches Brew refracted the chaos and beauty of a society stretched (and stressed) to its breaking point, the penultimate creation of Miles’ career.

BITCHES BREW LIVE adds yet another dimension to the album’s prismatic reputation. Its nine rare live performances comprise repertoire from the studio album and the one that preceded it, 1969′s In A Silent Way. The live tracks were recorded at festivals nine months before Bitches Brew’s release (Newport Jazz, July 1969, the first three tracks, previously unissued) and four months after (Isle Of Wight, August 1970, the final six tracks). This fascinating 59-minute glimpse into ‘the evolution of the groove’ will be available at all physical and digital retail outlets starting February 8, 2011.”
