Go on... Tease Me Again!

Allaboutjazz.com is sporting a press release with the hopeful title Jazz News: Miles Davis - "The Cellar Door Sessions 1970" Release Date Set For December 27. But seriously, the box has been delayed three times through greed and legal wrangling. If the music weren't so good, I would seriously consider boycotting the sleaze that's been coming out of both Sony and the Miles Davis estate...

Here is the Miles Davis collection that fans have most eagerly awaited (ha! no kidding). Previously available as a fraction of the music herein and only initially issued domestically in edited form on the two-LP set, "Live Evil," "The Cellar Door Sessions 1970" was recorded December 16-19, 1970 at a club in Washington, D.C., where the great trumpeter-bandleader Davis was at the helm of one his most stimulating groups.
