Cosmic Jazz tonight featured a rare live Miles Davis track – Fat Time, only issued in the UK as part of the Complete Columbia Album Collection. Unless you’ve got the 70 disc box set you won’t have heard this one before! It’s all because we’re commemorating the death of Miles Davis on 28 September 1991. Davis – perhaps the greatest legend in jazz history – changed the course of jazz many times in his recording career and our exclusive track comes from the final phase in 1981.
We also featured an unusual Art Blakey track, more drum music from Brian Blade – and a reminder that October 15 would have been Fela Kuti’s 72nd birthday.
