Join Brian Blade, Joel Frahm, Nathan Labertson, Matt Lemmler, Ashlin Parker and other guests as we celebrate the music of the great Miles Davis. Paying homage to the late great trumpeter’s music this show sets out to bring back to life the mood and aura that made his music so distinct. The concert is followed by a screening of Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool.
Directed by the gifted Stanley Nelson (The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution), Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool is a tantalizing portrait: rich, probing, mournful, romantic, triumphant, tragic, exhilarating, and blisteringly honest. If you were 15 years old and walked into this movie having never heard of Miles Davis, you’d walk out touching the essence of who he is (and would probably be hungry to hear a dozen different albums). If you’re a Miles Davis fanatic from way back and think you already know everything about him, the movie, with its sharply edited interviews and stunning archival reach, fills in nuances of the man that feel fresh and new. That’s what first-rate classical documentary filmmaking does: It brings a life you may already know to even greater life.
