I think they played it in NYC a second time around '95 or '96.
BTW: I've played AFMM twice.

Aura was a high point! But he didn't write it - Palle Millelborg did.
It's been a while, I pulled it out to listen to this week. Fiesta - I don't
have a needle for my turntable, so I haven't heard it since it came out.
I did like Tutu, but the later period Miles was hit and miss. At least
we could always count on his playing to be hip, even if the context
was kinda un-hip.
I probably like the "Classic" Quintet w/ Wayne Shorter and Tony Williams
the best, but the Silent Way/ Bitches Brew/ electric years are amazing too.
I enjoy his post-bop solo material too (up to Kind of Blue), but
it isn't quite as interesting as the Classic Quartet.

I only heard him once live, around the same time in a very rare club
show near Times Square. Great seat too, I saw lot of his back.
