YO MILES! Live At The Fillmore - Oct. 21, 1999 - Unreleased

Great sounding live recording from Wadada Leo Smith's and Henry Kaiser's Yo Miles!, recorded October 21, 1999, as part of the San Francisco Jazz Festival. One of the band's earliest recorded dates and a blistering example of the balls-out energy this ensemble was capable of generating on any given night. This is the third unofficial and unreleased Yo Miles! performance we've posted here, all recorded at The Fillmore. Guitarist Nels Cline is sitting in on this night, and The ROVA Saxophone Quartet is in the house, too. Give a listen to "Agharta Prelude," below, and check out the other unreleased live shows we've got posted in the archives, HERE and HERE.
