The Cellar Door Sessions 1970 is a boxed live album released in 2005. It was recorded over several nights in 1970 at the Washington D. C. nightclub The Cellar Door. Columbia & Legacy – C6K 93614. Miles Davis: electric trumpet with wah-wah.

For devotees of Miles Davis's so-called "electric period," the full release of the music recorded live in December 1970 at the Washington, DC club The Cellar Door has long been something of a holy grail. A healthy sampling was released in 1971 on Live-Evil providing evidence that more of this sound existed. With the release of the 6-CD box set The Cellar Door Sessions 1970, all the anticipation is rewarded beyond measure.

Complete your Miles Davis collection. I was lucky to get it at a reasonable price. The band was really on fire on those dates.

Firing like a machine gun over a heavily armored and equipped outfit of young, brawny assassins, Miles Davis ruled the world at the end of 1970. A year removed from his "corruption" at the hands of rock- if you believe dozens of decaying jazz critics, that is- Davis had the band and the vision to play music that no one would ever play again.

With The Cellar Door Sessions Columbia Records once again sets the standard for lovingly assembled archival releases. This six album set documents a series of concerts given by Miles Davis at Washington DC’s Cellar Door Club in the winter of 1970. Fresh from the headily unmoored jams of the Jack Johnson sessions, Davis assembled a fierce electric ensemble to interpret his new work in a live setting. The Cellar Door Sessions sees Johnson session men Michael Henderson, Jack DeJohnette, and John McLaughlin joined by Keith Jarrett, Gary Bartz, and Airto Moreira

Here is the Miles Davis collection that his legions of American fans have most eagerly awaited. The Cellar Door Sessions documents the great David at the helm of one of his most stimulating and electrifying groups. The sextet on The Cellar Door ‘s bandstand – Davis, saxophonist Gary Bartz, Keith Jarret (playing electric organ and electric piano), Motown bassist Michael Henderson, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and percussionist Airto Moreira – is a sheer marvel of kinetic energy. And adding more visionary pyrotechnics is the blazing guitar of John McLaughlin

The Cellar Door Sessions 1970. When Miles Davis released Live-Evil in 1970, fans were immediately either taken aback or keenly attracted to its raw abstraction. It was intense and meandering at the same time; it was angular, edgy, and full of sharp teeth and open spaces that were never resolved. Airto Moreira and Jack DeJohnette are holdovers from the Live at the Fillmore East and Tribute to Jack Johnson sessions, among other concerts and sets that have appeared on many different records, from Big Fun to Get Up with It to Directions. The new players here include Gary Bartz on alto and soprano saxophone (he replaced Steve Grossman), and 19-year-old bassist Michael Henderson - fresh out of Stevie Wonder's band - replacing Dave Holland.
