Miles Davis had a raw, multi-syllable name for his group from 1969, and it wasn't one we can print in this newspaper.
Known in various jazz-obsessive circles as the Lost Band, the powerful quintet of all stars Davis assembled between the release of plate-shifting albums "In a Silent Way" and "Bitches Brew" included keyboardist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland, drummer Jack DeJohnette and saxophonist Wayne Shorter.
Though the group famously was never documented in the studio, its legacy is enhanced with "Live in Europe 1969," a four disc set that marks the second volume in Columbia/Legacy's Bootleg Series.
This look back through Davis' concert archives began last year with the box set "Live in Europe 1967." It was greeted with a justifiable avalanche of acclaim upon release for showcasing Davis at another of his many peaks with his influential "second great quintet," which included Shorter along with Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams and Ron Carter.
