Beautiful concert (despite I like more his '69-'75 period)- "my Polish" audience was excelente and they were screaming for encore so much that Miles was very surprised and happy (he even mentioned this concert in his autobiography).

"
(...) After 45 minutes, when Miles roadies were finishing on-stage arrangement, audience went back to take their sits. Within 5 minutes every sitting, standing, hanging is occupied, there are 4 thousands of us [edit - the capacity of Sala Kongresowa is max 3000 people]. They're coming in, Miles a bit limping, with his dark sunglasses, black hat, red leather fringed-jacket, black trousers and red high-heeled shoes. Ovation. Their taking their places. From left to right - Robert Irwing, Bill Evans, then Darryl Jones, Al Foster, in the middle, just in front of drums - Miles Davis, a bit right to him John Scofield and Mino Cinelu.

(...) Only first several minutes shows clear begginings and endings of each track. Then music changes into the course of thoughts, improvisations, climaxes and quietings. New theme announce new track

(...) After incredible ovation follow encore - "Open".
The ovation is even lauder, the musicians are coming back again - this time once again Scofield's "That's Wright". [b]The ovation doesn't stop, after few minutes of standing ovation thousands people scream "We want Miles! We want Miles! We want Miles! We want Miles!" They are coming back third time[/b], closing whole concert with "Speak". Miles looks very happy, he pushes few time his trumpet in the air and finally... he takes for a second his hat off, so to express his gratitude. They disappear.

(...) This was a great, unforgetable concert, maybe the greatest jazz show that was ever held in Poland. It was also a big show in a world wide range, as we may thought after reading opinions of foreign journalists. For someone because of the music, for the other - because of 3 encores and taking off the hat by Miles".
