Live-Evil is one of Davis' most extraordinary records. Here, on a double album comprised of both live and studio recordings, the electric sound that Davis first unveiled the year previous emerges as a fully formed and powerful beast. 

Featuring one of his finest bands, which included John McLaughlin, Keith Jarrett, Gary Bartz, Jack DeJohnette, and Brazilian percussionist Airto, Live-Evil is a stunning exploration of the outer limits of jazz, and one of the most influential records of the '70s. 

Four of the original LP's tracks were recorded at Columbia Records’ New York studios, with the remaining live tracks coming from a performance at Georgetown’s Cellar Door on December 19, 1970. 

This gig was especially notable because it marked a reunion between Davis and guitarist John McLaughlin, who at this point was on his way to becoming a jazz legend in his own right.
