This week's main feature comes from a live set by Miles Davis' 'lost band' of the late 1960s that never made it to the recording studio.

We'll hear a version of Miles' Bitches Brew recorded during promoter George Wein's 1969 Newport Jazz Festival in Europe tour. This reading of the piece was performaed by a different group to that on the studio sessions that went on to produce the celebrated album Bitches Brew in 1970.

And we'll also hear from new albums by the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra, Israeli trombonist Reut Regev, Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset, the Eric Boeren 4tet and Kit Downes... among others.
