Triple tribute to Miles

The great Miles Davis was honoured in 2009. The Festival marked the 50th anniversary of the classic album Kind of Blue with three shows dedicated to the late great trumpet player:

Jimmy Cobb

Jimmy Cobb and the So What Band presented the show Remembering the Miles Davis Classic Kind of Blue at 50. The venerable drummer knew a little something about the recording: He was in Davis’s band at the time.

Kenny Garrett

Saxophone player and one-time collaborator with the master Kenny Garrett presented the concert Sketches of MD, already released on CD in 2008.

Rudesh Mahanthappa

The collective Miles from India, composed of some ten virtuoso musicians including saxophone player Rudesh Mahanthappa, lent an Indian flavour to the work of Miles Davis.
