08-11-2018 12:00:00 10-11-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Plays Miles Davis | 8:00 PM The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performs Miles Davis' groundbreaking music from the 1940s–60s. Davis' work during these years is unparalleled in its stylistic range, impact, and enduring popularity, and this show will explore the pivotal musical moments on his quest towards innovation. After demonstrating Davis' early bebop stylings, as heard in songs like "Little Willie Leaps," the JLCO will move on to the rich, textured arrangements of Birth of the Cool, showcasing the unconventional brass instrumentation that gave it its unique sound. You will hear landmark pieces from Davis' "first great quintet," including his initial experiment with modal jazz in 1958's "Milestones"—a style fleshed out further in Davis' 1959 landmark, Kind of Blue. Davis stayed ahead of the curve throughout the 1960s, offering a preview of the sounds that would gain popularity in years to come. The JLCO will show you this progression, revisiting the "second great quintet's" brand of swinging, avant-garde eclecticism as well as the earliest traces of Davis' transition into electric jazz. For this last component, the JLCO will perform an expansive arrangement of "Tout de Suite"—Davis' first work with Chick Corea and Dave Holland. This timeless music remains enormously popular among both hardcore jazz fans and casual listeners, and this concert will provide you with new perspective on each composition and creative breakthrough. Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=316745 Dizzy's Club Coca Cola Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
