For the first time on DVD are two concerts from one of Miles' great later quintets, with Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette. Filmed live at Tivoli Koncertsal in Copenhagen on November 4, 1969, and from teatro Sistine in Rome on October 27, 1969. Note: The Copenhagen part of this show is of questionable quality, but remains a valuable document of a classic Miles group. The Rome footage is closer to the quality expected today.

This collection, consisting of 6 separate DVDs, focuses exclusively on live performances ranging from clubs to festivals to TV studio engagements, without any speakers or introducers… Nothing but music!

Dave Brubeck (piano) began his Columbia Records association on a second album of material that his quartet had cut during its spring of 1954 tour of North American college campuses, Paul and Dave's Jazz Interwoven (1954) being the first. Joining Brubeck are Paul Desmond (alto sax), Bob Bates (bass), and Joe Dodge (drums), whose support of Brubeck is uniformly flawless, ultimately producing what many consider as the most memorable music in the artist's cannon. "Balcony Rock" commences the platter from sides documented at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor…
Soft Machine were one of the very first groups to fuse Jazz with Rock in the late 60s and were hugely appreciated in Europe for their unique sound. This previously unreleased show was recorded for Germany's famous NDR Jazz Workshop series featuring the line-up of Mike Ratledge, Karl Jenkins, Roy Babbington and John Marshall with Art Themen and Gary Boyle. This long sought-after performance has never been seen since its original broadcast in 1973 and is the highest quality video document that exists of the group, featuring clear and beautiful visuals and superb live stereo sound!
