First release of a series from Ermitage label dedicated to the concerts the legendary Olympia in Paris.
Olympia is the music temple and not only for French: the Paris theatre has hosted all the greatest artists from Jazz to Rock and Pop (Georges Brassens, Édith Piaf, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis,only to name a few..)
But it was under the direction, from 1954 of Bruno Coquatrix who made it famous and its live concerts prestigious around the world !
Olympia is certainly a certified warranty for all live concerts lovers and here’s at its best in a series of unreleased performances on 180gr vinyl.
An astounding Miles Davis to feature in these recordings who had in that same year released albums such as Birth of the cool, Miles ahead and Round Midnight.
This lineup (including the great Kenny Clarke, one of the founders of Modern Jazz Quartet) is the same which will be recording, a few days later in Paris, the latter noted “Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud”.
