Hammersmith Odeon, London GB 


29 octobre 1967



The Miles Davis band, the famous 1960s quintet, was: Davis trumpet, Wayne Shorter tenor sax, Herbie Hancock piano, Ron Carter double bass, Tony Williams drums. They played their familiar contemporary jazz, showing terrific musicianship, working together, leftfield improvisation sometimes modal, striking rhythm changes, great invention. Archie Shepp, tenor sax, played with Roswell Rudd trombone, Grachan Moncur III trombone, Charlie Haden double bass and Beaver Harris drums. Raucous, ‘free’ jazz, very much of the late 60s moment, committed, making a statement, far out soloing mixed with familiar (scraps of) tunes. Quite an event.

This was one of the best live music experiences I have had. Miles went on first, which was odd, but Shepp stole the evening with exciting and innovative jazz. I'll always remember the two trombones at either end of the stage and Shepp entering wailing wild and wonderful sounds. Fantastic
