Sanctuary: Music of Miles Davis ’68 – ’75
- This event has passed.
Sanctuary presents a special tribute to the music of Miles Davis, mostly circa 1968 – 1975, but also other periods – played not as a classical artifact, but as the living, breathing art that it should be. This expanded, all-star version of Sanctuary will include the talents of Dwight Adams, Bobby Floyd, Willie Barthel, Jim Ed Cobbs, Zakk Jones, Robert Mason and Tony McClung.
Between 1968 – 1975, Davis experimented with rock, funk, African rhythms, emerging electronic music technology and an ever-changing line-up of musicians. This period, began with Davis’ 1969 studio album “In a Silent Way” and concluded with the 1975 concert recording “Agharta.” His million-selling 1970 record “Bitches Brew” helped spark a resurgence in the genre’s commercial popularity with jazz fusion as the decade progressed.
