With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

We knew nothing about this group and only heard a few minutes of their music online before going to see them. We're so glad we've been introduced to them. What an awesome group! And the next time they perform in the Southern California, we'll be sure to see them again. John's guitar playing was to the level of Eric Clapton and the violinist was incredible. He made that violin sing.

Walk the streets of 1930s Paris, be transported to Greece, Latin America and back home, in one night, live at the Curtis! Grammy winner John Jorgenson and his Quintet enthrall audiences with original and classic "gypsy jazz" - the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris. Virtuosic guitar, clarinet, violin, bouzouki, bass, vocals and percussion take center stage in this upbeat, luxuriant evening of live music.
