More than four decades after the original release, Miles Davis’ first RIAA gold album ‘Bitches Brew’ will be re-released. Not just as a reissue with some unreleased material, but in the format of an entire live album! ‘Bitches Brew Live’ can be expected on February 8 of the new year. It contains nine rare live performances that comprise repertoire from the studio album and the one that preceded it, 1969’s ‘In A Silent Way’.
A great find over at the website of illustrator/designer Oliver Barrett. During the first half of 2009, he created a portrait of his favourite jazz legends each month. If you like them, you can buy a framed copy of your favourite jazz musician over at Imagekind for less than 20 dollars. Oliver Barrett: “The results are John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Max Roach, and Charlie Parker in six different prints in blue, paying homage to Blue Note Records.”
Jazz-wise, he remixed songs by the legendary Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis. Besides that, Apple Juice Kid is involved in ‘The Remix Project’, with a variety of remixes of classic hip hop songs from the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Digable Planets and Black Sheep.
