Shining Hour- Live At The Trident // Denny Zeitlin (Columbia CL 2463)

This is one of my favorite Miles albums.  Tastefully recorded under electric circumstances, this live album comes from a 1964 benefit concert, and the material from this concert was put out on two records, this being one of them. Continue reading
