The live album features one of Miles Davis’ last-ever performances.

Rhino Records will release a live album of one of Miles Davis’s final concerts at the Vienne Jazz Festival in France in 1991.

The nine-song set, performed with The Miles Davis Group, featured material from Davis’ latter albums. Of particular note, he played “Penetration” and “Jailbait”, two songs written by Prince for Davis in 1988.

The release of Davis’ electrifying performance is part of Rhino’s Black Music Month celebration, and will be available digitally, as a two-CD, or as double LP set. The package includes liner notes from music historian and producer Ashley Kahn and artwork designed by Bruno Tilley.

The release date is 25th June but you can pre-order ‘Merci, Miles! Live At Vienne’ today.
