In 1970, legendary jazz composer and trumpeter Miles Davis performed a set using electrified instruments with a group of musicians at the Isle of Wight music festival. This documentary presents the entire concert, along with context about Davis' controversial decision to move away from acoustic instrumentation in 1968. Guitarist Carlos Santana is among those testifying to the musician's influence, while scholar and jazz critic Stanley Crouch argues that going electric ruined Davis' music.
