The Man with the Horn: Music of Miles Davis

Jul 24, 2014 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Experience the essential, indubitably cool sounds of Miles Davis, the embodiment of jazz.

Miles Davis is an emblem of jazz, a man who always found his own way and in the process, opened doors for all musicians. He had a genius for finding and creating songs that made a perfect canvas for the improviser. When he played tunes—such as Dave Brubeck’s In Your Own Sweet Way, or JJ Johnson’s Lament—everyone else started playing them. His conception of jazz and that of the many musicians he influenced will forever be a part of the music universe.

Witness some of the most brilliant players of jazz today highlight Davis’ songs—such as “My Funny Valentine,” “Autumn Leaves”—and innovative compositions—“Donna Lee,” “All Blues,” “Solar”—at this not to be missed performance.
