Amsterdam Concert is a rare live Miles Davis recording from 1957. This album, one of the least-known recordings of Miles Davis, was recorded at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam on December 8, 1957, a couple of days after the recording of the movie soundtrack Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. On this concert, Miles did not play with his regular quintet, but with the same lineup he used for the recording of Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. It features Barney Wilen on tenor saxophone, René Urtreger on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums.
