1947 to 1968 - Bird / Kind Of Blue / Coltrane / Shorter
In this set Brownman will take listeners through the earliest eras of Miles, from his days with Charlie "Bird" Parker, through his time on the Prestige label with John Coltrane at his side (1st Great Quintet), to the primordial "Kind Of Blue" recording and finally to his tenure with the 2nd Great Quintet featuring Wayne Shorter.

1969 to 1991 - Silent Way / Bitches Brew / Tutu / hip-hop
This set will investigate Miles' electric explorations, starting with the iconic "In A Silent Way", through "Bitches Brew" to "On The Corner", before arriving at his next electric resurgence in the 80's with bassist/producer Marcus Miller, to his final days when Miles was immersed in jazz collisions with hip-hop ("Doo-Bop").

Heralded as "Canada's preeminent Jazz trumpeter" by NYC's Village Voice, Brownman Ali  born on the small Caribbean island of Trinidad, & schooled in NYC  is a multiple award-winning NYC-schooled protégé to his teacher, Grammy-winning trumpet legend, Randy Brecker.  He tirelessly leads 7 unique ensembles of his own including the internationally acclaimed Miles Davis influenced BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO, and the award-winning CRUZAO latin-jazz quintet.  In high demand in the the studio world with over 300 CD appearances to date, Brownman delivers stylistically authentic horn playing over a wide range of styles from bebop to hiphop having worked with the likes of Guru's Jazzmatazz (replacing Donald Byrd in that primordial ensemble), Mos Def, KRS-1, Quincy Jones, Paul Simon, Mingus Dynasty Big Band, Gary Bartz, Chucho Valdes & far too many more to name here.

He is considered to be one of the most unique and provocative improvising trumpet players in the nation today, is widely regarded as a vanguard for the evolution of Jazz in Canada & is recognized as one of the greatest Miles Davis interpreters i the country.

A highly decorated player, his accolades include 2 National Jazz Awards (and 11 nominations over the years), a CBC Galaxie Rising Star award, a SOCAN composers award, Montreal Jazz Fest's "Grand Prix Du Jazz" award, a Toronto Independent Music Award (& 6 nominations), an induction into the WHO'S WHO IN BLACK CANADA, a BRAVO! channel documentary on his life, NOW magazine naming him "Toronto's Best Jazz Musician", CBC Radio Canada named him "one of the most recorded trumpet players in Canadian history", the Trinidad & Tobago Consulate General awarded  him with a citation for being a "Distinguished National of Trinidad", and is listed by Air Canada as one of the "Top 10 reasons to visit Toronto".
