Sony will release a four-CD set comprising the complete sets performed at New York’s Fillmore Auditorium on Wednesday, June 17, Thursday, June 18, Friday, June 19, and Saturday, June 20. Edited versions of these sets were issued by Columbia in October 1970. Bonus material will include other tracks from Fillmore performances in April 1970.

The latest in the Columbia/Legacy Miles Davis bootleg series is to be released in late-March, the label has indicated.

Miles At The Fillmore – Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3 is a 4-CD set recorded over four nights (presented here as a disc per night) in June 1970 at the Fillmore East in New York city issued along with bonus tracks from the April 1970 San Francisco Fillmore West gigs (the same month Bitches Brew came out).

It’s Miles’ band that sees the trumpeter joined by Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette, Airto Moreira, and Steve Grossman. Two LPs from the shows were issued in October 1970 but this time EVERYTHING is included full and unedited, clocking in at some 135 minutes of previously unreleased music, the label says. It’s issued with a 36-page booklet that includes a substantial contribution from Carlos Santana.

Edit/update:

Two hours of previously unreleased performances by Miles Davis, leading a band that included Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland, Airto Moreira and Steve Grossman, will be included in “Miles at the Fillmore – Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 3,” a four-CD set to be released by Columbia/Legacy on March 25.

The set includes what Legacy describes as the unedited recordings of the performances Davis and his group gave at the Fillmore East from June 17 to 20, 1970, with bonus material from Davis’s April 11, 1970 performance at the Fillmore West. Like many of Davis’s concert recordings, full versions of the Fillmore shows have traded hands among collectors for several years.

The concerts took place shortly after the release of “Bitches Brew,” an album in which Davis blended rock influences into his own increasingly personal and wide-ranging brand of jazz. His Fillmore dates were an attempt to reach the rock audience. He shared the bill with Laura Nyro at the Fillmore East and with the Grateful Dead at the Fillmore West.

A heavily edited double-LP version of the Fillmore East performances, the tracks listed simply as “Wednesday Miles,” “Thursday Miles,” “Friday Miles” and “Saturday Miles” – that is, excerpts from one of the shows on each LP side – was released in October 1970 as “Miles Davis at Fillmore.” On the new version, as on the 1997 reissue, the individual songs (among them, “Bitches Brew,” “It’s About That Time,” “Sanctuary” and “I Fall in Love Too Easily”) are separately tracked and identified. Pieces not included in earlier incarnations include “Paraphernalia,” “Footprints” and “Miles Runs the Voodoo Down.” – Allan Kozinn, NY Times, January 24, 2013
