He has performed with orchestras, including a new rendition of Rhapsody In Blue- and given solo recitals celebrating the music of Cole Porter, Thelonius Monk and Dizzy Gillespie.
Together they will pay tribute to one of the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th century music, a trumpeter, bandleader and composer who adopted a variety of musical directions in a five-decade career that kept him at the forefront of many major stylistic developments in jazz. Making his mark as a member of Charlie Parker's bebop quintet in the mid-40's, he soon recorded teh Birth of the Cool, ushering in the era of cool jazz. In the early 1950s, Miles Davis recorded some of hte earliest hard bop music while on Prestige records. He work with John Coltrane and Paul Chambers in his first sextet is legendary as are his orchestral jazz collaborations with arranger Gil Evans, such as the Spanish-influenced Sketches of Spain. Kind of Blues (1959) remains one of the most popular jazz albums of all times. In the early sixties, Miles introduces Ron Carter (bs),Herbie Hancock (pno) and Tony Williams (dr) to the world, soon adding Wayne Shorter (sax) to his new quintet in 1964. This more abstract and adventurous group led to his electric period of the 70's, when he experimented with rock, funk, African rhythms, electronic technology and fusion which led to pop-inspired explorations in the 1980's. In 2006, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which recognized him as "one of the key figures in the history of jazz."
