A Collaboration with Blue Note Records
Featuring the Ambrose Akinmusire Quintet
The Miles Davis Experience: 1949-1959 recaptures the sound, historical, and cultural context of a critical period in American History through the lens of jazz music and its most iconic innovator, Miles Davis. Sanctioned by Blue Note Records and featuring Blue Note artist Ambrose Akinmusire, this intriguing tour provides a great opportunity to reintroduce Miles to a younger audience and those unfamiliar with his legacy. It also gives his large fan base a chance to experience and celebrate his music in a new live setting. The show includes live music performed in the manner it was first presented, with era photos and film clips brought together by a beat poet-style narrator.
