Miles Davis: My Funny Valentine (MFSL)
Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab pressing on 180gm vinyl
Miles Davis In Concert – My Funny Valentine
Miles Davis' My Funny Valentine marks several historic turning points. For Davis, the live album represents the final time on record he’d perform standards rather than original compositions. It also stands as one of the last documents made by the same band that created Seven Steps of Heaven. As such, the work teems with bebop melodicism yet steers clear of Davis’ oft-controversial avant-garde leanings. Most significantly, however, the set captures the ballads performed at a benefit concert from New York’s then-new Philharmonic Hall just months after President Kennedy’s assassination. Tapping into a seemingly divine inspiration, Davis never sounded so elegant or poetic.
