Miles & Betty Davis Unreleased Demo Session Released For The First Time

Betty Davis’s brief marriage to Miles Davis led him towards the embracing of new sounds in the ’60’s. The former Betty Mabry introduced Davis to the music of Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone which was the precursor to his explorations in fusion with Bitches Brew. Before she recorded her groundbreaking funk solo albums and he started crafting his new sound, they recorded some demos for Columbia. Mitch Mitchell, who was the drummer for The Jimi Hendrix Experience and saxophonist Wayne Shorter are some of the people who played on the session. The recording has now been released as Betty Davis The Columbia Years: 1968-1969 and it has been remastered and has  rare photos and interviews.
