Miles Davis’ 1959 Columbia Records recording KIND OF BLUE has been lauded as one of the most influential albums in the history of jazz and a defining moment in 20th century music.  Exploring the tonalities of what historians would later dub a “modal approach”, this album captured Miles in the act of creating ethereal atmospheric performances that emphasized melodic inventiveness.  In tribute to this monumental album internationally acclaimed multi-award winning trumpet player and jazz iconoclast BROWNMAN ALI — heralded by the Hamilton Spec as “one of the greatest interpreters of Miles Davis’ work in Canada — will front a hand-picked ensemble comprised of Toronto’s top-tier jazz musicians to perform thïs entire masterpiece album from top to bottom as Set 1, before turning to other similarly spirited Miles tunes from that era as Set 2.  Not to be missed.
