About the image
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 second night, Thursday, June 18, 1970 which would correspond to the "Thursday Miles" track on the album.

“Miles was very spontaneous,” Craig says. “He never wanted to rehearse. There’s a famous quote of his: ‘Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there.’ You would see one concert and it would be this way, and the next night it would be completely different. Everybody would vibe off of everyone else.”

In 1970, Glen Craig was hired to capture images of Miles for an upcoming spread in Zygote Magazine, a feature designed to help expose Davis to a more mainstream audience. He spent three weeks shooting Davis in various locales including at home, at the gym, in the studio, and on stage.
