October 1981 Japanese concert tour program
Large original vintage program book lavishly produced for the Miles Davis’ October 1981 Japanese tour, in support of The Man with the Horn — a studio album, produced by Teo Macero and released in July 1981 by Columbia Records. It was Miles’ first new release since 1975, following a six-year reclusive retirement. The album marked a return to his more traditional trumpet playing, although the title song “The Man with the Horn” features wah-wah improvisation along with vocals. The band for the 1981 Japanese tour featured bassist Marcus Miller, saxophonist Bill Evans, drummer Al Foster, guitarist Mike Stern, and percussionist Mino Cinelu.
