This Monday night on Jazz Alternatives (6pm to 9pm EDT at 89.9FM and wkcr.org) Mitch Goldman is joined by drummer / bandleader Ben Perowsky. They will put Miles Davis fall 1967 tour in Deep Focus with unreleased live recordings. When Sony put out “Live in Europe 1967,” Pitchfork said, “”it isn’t just the best band Miles ever led, but one of the choicest small groups in jazz history… At its heart, jazz thrives on bold, sensitive interaction in the moment, and Live in Europe 1967 represents the pinnacle of that practice.” That may well be but the whole story has not been told. We can’t wait to hear what Ben Perowsky has to say about these recordings from the WKCR archives.
