Miles Davis, Live at Troubadour Club, Los Angeles, January 17-19, 1975 (ER013)

This apparently was Miles' last American west coast gig before flying out to Japan for the historic Agharta and Pangaea concerts. I snagged it from the fantastic blog elastic rock but for some reason it doesn't seem to be there anymore. Personnel:
Miles Davis (trumpet, keyboards)
Sonny Fortune (soprano & alto sax, flute)
Pete Cosey (guitar, keyboards)
Reggie Lucas (guitar)
Michael Henderson (bass)
Al Foster (drums)
James "Mtume" Foreman (percussions)
