This diptych captures Miles Davis during two distinct elements of a trumpet performance, capturing some of the energy that a viewer would experience at the live performance.
Miles Davis recorded Miles Davis at Fillmore over the course of four nights from June 17-20, 1970. On the resulting double LP, each of the nights were edited down to single tracks, named after the day of the performance on which it was recorded. This shot is from the first night, Wednesday, June 17, 1970 which would correspond to the "Wednesday Miles" track on the album.
With typical athleticism, Davis reaches for a high note on stage at the Fillmore East. “This is where his gym training came in,” Craig says.

This piece is part of Glen Craig's Montage Collection
. Glen studied graphic design in school and always maintained that approach to his work both while shooting and later, when reviewing the results. Occasionally a sequence of images stands out because the combination captures something quintessential about the subject, infers action, or the passage of time, among other things. These pieces have been carefully composed and represent a unique take on his photographic works.
