About the Event

LISTENING TO JAZZ: THE GREAT QUINTETS OF MILES DAVIS

ONLINE WORKSHOP WITH PAUL SILBERGLEIT

With the iconic trumpeter’s 1950s crew of tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer “Philly” Joe Jones, and again with the mid 1960s lineup of George Coleman or Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams, the Miles Davis Quintet of either time period set the standard for small-group jazz playing, and helped set the direction of the whole genre. Join MJI’s Paul Silbergleit for a comparative look at these two amazing bands, and the way they’ve influenced the music ever since.

Cost: $15
