Live At Montreux
- Highlights 1973-1991

Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the release on DVD of the "Live At Montreux - Highlights 1973-1991" from Miles Davis [Cat No EREDV883]. Miles Davis is one of the most successful artists in the history of jazz and has a fanatical following. A lot of the footage on this release is previously unseen and none has ever been commercially released before.

Miles Davis is universally regarded as one of the most influential and innovative jazz musicians and composers of the 20th Century. He was at the forefront of the jazz world for decades and was involved in the evolution of bebop, cool jazz, modal jazz and jazz fusion amongst others. Miles Davis played many times at the Montreux Jazz Festival, especially after his return to performance in the early eighties. This DVD brings together some of the highlights of those Montreux shows stretching back to his first appearance in 1973 and up to his final concert there in July 1991, just a couple of months before his death in September of that year.
