After hearing Miles In Berlin, also check out the group's dynamic Plugged Nickel date. It was recorded over a year after the band's Berlin appearance, and by then, the quintet had been into the studio for a host of original tunes. Yet Davis still opted to play old repertoire which pre-dated his current band. The differences are immense, and the mental bonds of the musicians are at their peak. With each gig, this quintet stripped another stereotypical element from the acoustic jazz cliché until finally a redefinition of the musical genre had taken place.
CD - Sony Music Distribution. Recorded live in Germany at the Berlin Philharmonic, Miles in Berlin represents the first recording of trumpeter Miles Davis with tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter. For various reasons, saxophonists George Coleman and Sam Rivers had both come and gone as members of Davis' band. With the addition of Shorter in 1964, Davis had found the lineup of musicians that he would stick with until 1968 and produce some of the most influential albums of his career - collected on The Miles Davis Quintet, 1965-68: The Complete Columbia Studio
