Miles Davis Night At Tula's
Miles Davis is still one of the most influential figures in jazz, even after more than twenty years since his death (1991). On what would have been his 88th birthday on May 26, a section of 77th Street in New York City where he lived and composed some of his most memorable music was renamed Miles Davis Way.
In Seattle on May 24, a quintet of Seattle musicians gathered on stage at Tula's to play some of the music composed and played by Miles Davis and members of the groups he led, including Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. Playing for a full house of enthusiastic fans, trumpet player Thomas Marriott led a quintet with Mark Taylor, saxophones, Darrell Grant, piano, Evan Flory-Barnes, bass and Matt Jorgensen on drums. The music reflected several distinct periods and styles of Miles Davis multi-faceted career as trumpet player, bandleader and catalyst.
