The double live album Dark Magus was recorded at New York's Carnegie Hall on March 30, 1974. Miles Davis' band at the time consisted of bassist Michael Henderson, drummer Al Foster, percussionist James Mtume, saxophonist Dave Liebman, and guitarists Pete Cosey and Reggie Lucas

Dark Magus was produced by Teo Macero and features four two-part recordings named after the Swahili words for the numbers one through four. Dark Magus was not released until after Davis' retirement in 1975. After the release of the live albums Agharta (1975) and Pangaea (1976), Dark Magus was first released in Japan

The album inspired noise-rock bands of the late '70s and experimental funk artists of the early '80s. In retrospect, critics praise its jazz-rock aesthetic and the band members' performance, even pointing to its partial anticipation of jungle music. in 2001, Q Magazine listed Dark Magus as one of the 50 greatest albums of all time.
