MILES DAVIS’ “KIND OF BLUE” W/ GARY CROSBY’S NU TROOP
DOUBLE BILL W/ SARAH MCKENZIE, THE EVERYMAN
FRIDAY 27TH OCTOBER @ 8:00PM
It difficult to express the importance of Miles Davis’ influence on the world of jazz, with a career spanning over five decades over which he introduced many major stylistic developments to this superb art form.
In 1959, he recorded what is widely regarded as his most triumphant album, Kind of Blue, with his then working sextet featuring John Coltrane.
This ground-breaking and popular album has become the highest selling jazz album of all time, going quadruple platinum. It was further honoured by the US House of Representatives in 2009 when they voted 409-0 in favour of naming the album as a national treasure.
Renowned jazz double bassist, Gary Crosby brings his outstanding all-star Nu Troop sextet from London to the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival for an exclusive live performance of Miles Davis’s masterpiece.
Fiery solos and tight ensemble playing of the sensational music that set the jazz world on fire will satisfy your hunger for the ultimate jazz experience.
of Blue never gets old, even almost six decades on. You will be hearing magic created again by a brilliant group, so join us for what will undoubtedly be a memorable night at The Everyman.
