The Cellar Door Sessions 1970 is a 2005 reissue of several 1970 concerts given by Miles Davis, at the Washington, DC nightclub, The Cellar Door. Significant portions of Davis' Live-Evil were edited and compiled from the music that appears on discs 5 and 6. It is one of the few recordings that has Keith Jarrett playing electric piano. Live-Evil and this collection are the only live recordings of John McLaughlin live performances with Miles Davis.

    Just... awesome club concerts. I read on allmusic that Miles paid the musicians out of his own pocket. Now that's dedication! And I'm damn glad he did; truly an amazing group of musicians involved in these sessions and they did indeed create something extraordinary.

    May I suggest a mini album to Columbia: disc 4 - tracks 2 to 6 ... truly sublime. As far as I am concerned, as good as anything a Miles Davis group has ever done. Each player in their own way is out of this world. Until Columbia comes out with it, it's an itunes playlist for me on repeat.

    If the tales of tension are true I can understand. I love John McLaughlin but he really didn't fit in here. Nevertheless this box set is right up there as a favourite of mine ... outstanding!

    Bought Live Evil in '73 and was positively surprised by this box. Great music and still as urgent as when it was made. Miles forever!!!
