A Different Kind of Blue Wikipedia
Miles Electric: A Different Kind of Blue is a 2004 DVD presenting footage of Miles Davis' performance at the British Isle of Wight Festival on August 29, 1970. The film presents interview clips from a range of those involved, including Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Airto Moreira, and musicians who were in Davis' musical orbit at the time such as Carlos Santana. It includes interviews with some of the band's participants.
This DVD was, for a long time, the only legitimately available recording of Miles' full Isle of Wight set. (Previously an excerpt had been distributed on a limited release 1970s LP of Columbia Records popular music, with the title, Call It Anything.) A few years after its release, a CD was issued in 2011 with this performance, Bitches Brew Live.
