Free downloads of Miles Davis' "Lost Quintet" now online via The Heat Warps

Music-sharing blog The Heat Warps has re-posted free downloads of two performances by Miles Davis' "Lost Quintet," the late-1960s configuration that bridged the span between his classic mid-1960s acoustic ensemble and his later electric groups of the 1970s.

The "Lost Quintet" featured Davis (pictured) on trumpet along with Dave Holland (bass), Wayne Shorter (tenor and soprano sax), Jack Dejohnette (drums), and Chick Corea (keyboards).

The Heat Warps post includes two sets from November 3, 1969 at the Salle Pleyel in Paris (which have showed up online before) and an earlier show from July 25, 1969 at La Pinède in Juan-les-Pins. You can find the links to download them here.
