Recorded in April 1961 at San Francisco’s Blackhawk club, these albums were the first purpose-designed live recordings Miles Davis made. Employing the rhythm section from his previous line-up with Coltrane, they feature Hank Mobley on tenor.

For the purpose of this reissue?you can buy each as a double album or the whole thing as a four-disc box?the entirety of each night’s recording has been resurrected, adding four tracks to Friday Night and nine to Saturday Night.

Great value for collectors.
