Recapture the period, sound, historical and cultural context of this critical period of American history through the lens of jazz music and its most iconic innovator, Miles Davis. Targeted for those too young to have had the chance to experience this critical period’s work or those not lucky enough to have seen him performing in his time, 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.
Miles Davis is one of the most pioneering musicians of his time and a legend, often noted as a giant in the history of jazz. The Miles Davis Experience: 1949-1959 celebrates the trumpeter’s time with Blue Note Records and what is known as Davis’s “Blue Period.”
Presented as part of Clifford Brown Year Round in partnership with Christina Cultural Arts Center and the City of Wilmington’s DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival
