Marcus in Miles Davis' Comeback Band Tour
1981-1983
As you know very well, Marcus was a member of Miles' comeback band.
Here is a tour history and bootleg of those lives.
To make this page, I was helped by Mr. Jan Lohmann and Mr. George Cole.
Thanks, Jan and George !
Of course, I got an approval from Marcus saying "That's fine, Harry. I'll be interested in seeing that".
Miles - trumpet, Marcus - bass, MIke Stern - guitar, Bill Evans - saxophone, Al Foster - drums, Mino Cinelu - percussion and John Scoflield - guitar late 1982
