Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis kicks off three-part salute to Miles Davis during 2018

New York, NY (October 5, 2018) - Jazz at Lincoln Center announces the first show in its three-part salute to Miles Davis: The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis plays Miles Davis, November 8-10, 2018 at 8pm, in Rose Theater. The evening will feature Davis’ groundbreaking music from the 1940s-60s, an output unparalleled in its stylistic range, impact, and enduring popularity. After demonstrating Davis’ early bebop stylings, as heard in songs like “Little Willie Leaps,” the JLCO will move on to the rich, textured arrangements of Birth of the Cool, showcasing the unconventional brass instrumentation that gave it its unique sound. Landmark pieces from Davis’ “first great quintet,” including his initial experiment with modal jazz in 1958’s “Milestones”- a style fleshed out further in Davis’ 1959 landmark, Kind of Blue - will also be featured in the evening’s repertoire. The JLCO will also perform an expansive arrangement of “Tout de Suite,” Davis’ first work with Chick Corea and Dave Holland.
