Miles Davis

The SF Jazz Collective is an all-star award-winning band comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work in jazz today. Each year the group focuses on the legacy of one artist that has had a significant impact on music.

This year the ensemble performs new arrangements as well as original compositions inspired by the artistry of jazz legend Miles Davis. More than anyone else, Davis consistently changed the sound of jazz from the birth of bebop in the 1940s to the integration of rock approaches that gave rise to the fusion movement in the 1970s.

There’s a great story behind “Miles Davis and John Coltrane—The Final Tour,” the sixth volume in Sony’s “Bootleg Series” of live recordings by Davis (it comes out March 23rd), and that story makes itself heard in the music. In 1960, the trumpeter Miles Davis, along with his regular band, was booked to go on a concert tour in Western Europe as part of the ongoing, and internationally famous, “Jazz at the Philharmonic” concert series.
