6. It s About That Time
7. Sanctuary
8. Spanish Key

There are a lot of live recordings of Miles Davis in this electric period in the late 1960s but the Newport tracks are very unusual with Davis backed only by the rhythm section.

This isn’t my era of jazz but I can understand that this is an important phase.
