A stunning cast of acclaimed musicians reveals the epic legacy of Miles Davis’ landmark album on the 40th anniversary of its release. Bitches Brew, Davis’ pioneering work with electronic music, was, in 1970, an augur of jazz’s cross-genre evolution and is, today, hailed by some audiophiles as the greatest jazz and rock album ever made. A who’s who of jazz, hip–hop and rock artists pack the stage, led by cornetist Graham Haynes, a major force in contemporary electronic and world music. The inimitable Marco Benevento employs pedals, amplifiers, circuit bent toys and sundry effects around his acoustic piano set-up. The revered innovator DJ Logic, pioneering guitarist Vernon Reid (erstwhile leader of multiplatinum rock band Living Colour), cross cultural percussionist Adam Rudolph, in-demand saxophonist and clarinetist Antoine Roney and Melvin Gibbs, “the best bassist in the world” (Time Out New York), all conspire to create a supernatural night that will leave devotees, skeptics and neophytes charmed and reeling, happily, back into the future of jazz.
