Miles Davis :: Vienna 1973

When listening to the electric work of Miles Davis and his bands in the 1970s, the thought that often goes through my mind is: “How the fuck are they making these sounds?” This high quality 1973 video of the band taking no prisoners in Vienna offers a few answers. Gear heads will dig the lingering shots of keyboards and amps; musos will study every frame devoted to the astonishing guitar attack of Pete Cosey and Reggie Lucas. And then there’s Miles himself, the magnetic center of it all, reveling in the massive cloud of dark funk the musicians are conjuring up. Fearless transmissions from the outer limits. words / t wilcox
