I svallvågorna efter "Bitches Brew" drog Miles in på rocktemplet Fillmore West i San Francisco med sitt nya elektriska band: Steve Grossman ss, Chick Corea el-p, Dave Holland el-b, Jack De Johnette dr och Airto Moreira perc. I det här dubbelalbumet dokumenteras livespelningen. Utviknings-digipac med nyskriven text av Corea i häftet.

"...What is most interesting about this performance is how abstract it is, even by the standards exacted on In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew. Opening with Joe Zawinul's "Directions," with a small three-note vamp, Davis creates a spaciousness for Grossman to hit the stratosphere and for both Holland and DeJohnette to literally fall freely as a rhythm section as long as they could find a groove....On "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down," since there is a discernible though minimal melody and groove, the band brings it in tighter, focusing on Davis smattering blues notes and Corea's distorted chord voicings. This is where the band hits their stride, and keeps it through "Willie Nelson" and the Sammy Cahn tune, an odd choice for this part of the program, "I Fall in Love Too Easily."....There is no harmony to speak of and melody has become an extinct concept. What matters most is the nuance of groove and rhythm, and Davis found both in this band, though Grossman's playing is too busy and too green; he plays everything he knows in every solo. It's a small complaint, as this is an exciting document of a band trying to come to grips with the power of a music they don't even fully understand yet." (Thom Jurek, allmusic.com)
