FIVE WEEKS FOR MILES | 5 Saturdays, 5 Quintets, 5 Eras of Miles


Every Saturday in April multi-award winning trumpet player BROWNMAN ALI — heralded as “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player” by New York’s Village Voice magazine — will lead 5 different all-star ensembles through 5 historic eras of jazz which Miles Davis catalyzed & immortalized with his presence.

The FIRST of these events will take place on SATURDAY APRIL 1 and proceeds will support Women’s Crisis Services!

Week 1: April 1, 2017 – “Young Miles” The Bird Years

A young Miles Davis began his career with Charlie “Bird” Parker & Dizzy Gillespie, obsessed with the creation of Bebop. This covers the 1940s on 52nd Street in New York City. His tenure as Bird’s sideman would most exemplify this hard-swinging period of his life.
