Upcoming live album by Miles Davis on Rhino to feature "Penetration" and "Jailbait" (written by Prince)

COMING SOON: Miles Davis, MERCI MILES! LIVE AT VIENNE

.

In July 1991, the country of France honored jazz legend Miles Davis by making him a Knight of its Legion of Honour. the French culture minister Jack Langdescribed Davis as "The Picasso of Jazz"; Davis, for his part, returned the accolades with a concert at Jazz a Vienne with the Miles Davis Group. That show was captured and is now set for release as Merci Miles! Live at Vienne on June 25 via Rhino Records.

.

.

Merci Miles! Live at Vienne features a pair of songs written by Davis' longtime friend and musical soulmate, Prince: "Penetration" and "Jailbait."

Can't wait! This is low key my favorite Miles period (88-91). Foley and Kenny Garrett?! BADASS! I have the amateur version of this concert so I can't wait to hear it soundboard

No!! It actually hit me the other day when I saw the tracklist. I was already a hardcore Prince fan back then, so I'd have been hysterical knowing I was hearing 2 unreleased Prince songs, but I had no way to know (IDK if Madhouse 24 was already out back then, but I wasn't yet aware of bootlegs, I bought my first boot about 4 months after that concert). Crazy, isn't it?
