Live in Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series Vol. 1 is a live album consisting of recordings of three separate concerts in Europe played by Miles Davis and his "second great quintet" (saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams), plus a DVD recorded in Germany and Sweden on 31 October 1967.[3] Each disc contains a set of recordings from one of three separate concerts played in Antwerp, Copenhagen and Paris.

The first disc was recorded at the Konigin Elizabethzaal in Antwerp, Belgium, on 28 October 1967, the second disc contains the set played on 2 November 1967 at the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark, and the third disc was recorded on 6 November 1967 at the Salle Pleyel in Paris, France.

Reception[edit]

Nate Chinen of The New York Times said the album "captures Davis’s finest working band at its apogee, straining at the limits of post-bop refinement."[2]
