The performances on this album, The Final Tour: Paris, March 21, 1960 — released here officially on vinyl for the first time—are as renowned for their emotional intensity as they are for their musical fervor. The common judgement is that this concert found a great jazz ensemble—the Miles Davis Quintet of 1960—audibly straining to hold itself together stylistically, its members moving in divergent directions, their music unable to hide an inner turmoil between the musicians—to the point that the audience responded to it, clearly and audibly.
