Miles Davis: The Sorcerer at 90
The first half of our Miles & ‘Trane Festival is led by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, as the band debuts new arrangements and revisits favorites from Miles Davis’ legendary body of work. The diverse, label-defying Davis, who would have turned 90 this year, remains the pinnacle of transformative expression, musically and beyond. From Birth of the Cool to Miles in the Sky, the famously versatile Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will perform and offer fresh perspective on some of his groundbreaking concepts and timeless masterpieces. Drummer Ali Jackson and trumpeter Marcus Printup will co-music direct these performances.
Arrive early on Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14 and enjoy the Miles & Trane Festival, featuring free live music and tastings by Jazz at Lincoln Center partners in the Ertegun Atrium, beginning at 6pm. The Mike Troy Trio will perform on the Atrium stage with alto saxophonist Mike Troy, bassist Dean Torrey, and drummer Aaron Seeber while guests sample menu items from Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Nanoosh, Don Antonio by Starita, and Spoonbread (Saturday only), and taste ice creams from Lotus Scoop.
