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.

Excellent. Cantus' voices blend like a huge single instrument. Though on a smaller scale, they seem to be emulating Chanticleer. We enjoyed the informality, almost conversationality among the singers, how each responded to each other.
We thoroughly enjoyed All Is Calm--so poignant again this year. We wonder how peace efforts would progress if left to the common man. The actors' voices and accents were extraordinarily versatile adding pathos and giving profound respect to all soldiers, then as now.
Cantus, one of America's finest male vocal ensembles and Theater Latté Da join forces in bringing to life this amazing story of hope and goodwill to men. A musical radio play for spoken word and choral voices, All Is Calm features such holiday classics as Silent Night, O Holy Night and popular songs of the day, interspersed with narration from the heartfelt letters of the story’s real-life characters. Sold-out in concerts throughout the country, this intimate evening of musical storytelling “is likely to become a classic to be repeated for years to come.”
