Liner Notes
LIVE AT TEATRO TENDA PIANETA, ROME, ITALY, APRIL 26, 1982 (2ND SET). "AFTER SIX YEARS SPENT AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC EYE (1975-1981) DUE TO A LONG PERIOD OF ILLNESS AND ADDICTION, MILES DAVIS FINALLY RETURNED TO MUSIC WITH 1981'S THE MAN WITH THE HORN. AND JUST TO PROVE THAT HE WAS FULLY OUT OF RETIREMENT, DAVIS EMBARKED ON A TOUR OF EUROPE IN THE SPRING OF 1982. IT WAS HIS FIRST EUROPEAN TOUR SINCE 1971 AND FANS CAME OUT IN DROVES TO SEE THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS. BY APRIL 26 APRIL 1982 DAVIS AND AN ALL-STAR BAND (FEATURING BILL EVANS ON SAX, MARCUS MILLER ON BASS, MIKE STERN ON GUITAR, AL FOSTER ON DRUMS AND FRENCH MUSICIAN MINU CINELU ON PERCUSSIONS) HAD MADE THEIR WAY DOWN TO ROME WHERE THEY PLAYED TWO SOLD OUT SETS. THE FIRST SET, WAS A FORTY-SIX MINUTE MEDLEY FEATURING DAVIS' OWN 'BACK SEAT BETTY', GERSHWIN'S 'MY MAN'S GONE NOW' FROM PORGY & BESS, AND IN A NOD TO HIS ITALIAN FANS, GIUSEPPE VERDI'S 'AIDA.'"
