A live double album by American jazz composer and trumpeter Miles Davis. It was recorded on March 30, 1974, at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Davis' group at the time included bassist Michael Henderson, drummer Al Foster, percussionistJames Mtume, saxophonist Dave Liebman, and guitarists Pete Cosey and Reggie Lucas. He also used the show to audition saxophonist Azar Lawrence and guitarist Dominique Gaumont. Dark Magus was produced by Teo Macero and featured four two-part recordings titled after Swahili names for the numbers one through four.

The album was not released in Davis' native United States until 1997 (issues with Columbia), when it was reissued by Sony Records and Legacy Records. In subsequent reviews, critics praised its jazz-rock aesthetic and the group members' performances, and felt that parts of the music foreshadowed jungle music. In 2001, Qmagazine named Dark Magus one of the 50 Heaviest Albums of All Time.
