  • For decades, rumors circulated about an almost mythical session recorded at New York's Columbia Studios on May 14-20, 1969. The landmark session was produced by Miles Davis and Teo Macero; Betty Davis sang and was joined by Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, guitarist John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock on keys and Dylan/Miles session bassist Harvey Brooks.

    Now Light In The Attic presents these recordings to the public for the very first time. This historic session, never heard before, not even as a bootleg, pre-dates Miles Davis' revolutionary album "Bitches Brew" and is the true birth of his jazz-rock sound as well as the foundation to Betty's groundbreaking funk sound, which she established a few years later in 1973 with her self-titled debut album. While these recordings remained unreleased for nearly 50 years, they significantly influenced both of their careers.
