Miles Davis Tribute
Miles Davis invented cool. Instrumental in shaping modern jazz, he left a legacy that has since impacted everyone who has picked up a trumpet or found themselves in the middle of a film-noir plot. The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra hails the man and the legend by focusing on Davis's artistic rise, playing a selection of his early works from the 1940s through the 1960s. Along with classic collaborations with Gil Evans, such as tunes from Birth of the Cool, the big band busts out such standards as "Round Midnight" and "Milestones." Before the show, audiences can hear a historical talk from radio personality Bobby Jackson and painter Jo Gelbard—the author of Miles and Jo: Love Story in Blue.
Cleveland Jazz Orchestra

The ensemble operates under the direction of Warren-native Sean Jones, a trumpeter who has worked with the likes of Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. In their concerts, the outfit explores all of jazz's permutations, from bebop to big band, touching on the greats of every era.
