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.

Quotes & Highlights
- "These men are phenomenal: as fresh as a blade of grass, tightly focused and keenly expressive." --New York Times
Praised by The New York Times for its "precise, pure, and deeply felt singing," the Grammy-winning ensemble, Chanticleer, celebrates its 28th season with a one-night-only performance at the Barclay. No subject has inspired poets and composers more than the beauty and power of nature. With EarthSongs, acclaimed 12-man ensemble Chanticleer pairs poets’ words with music to celebrate the grace of earth’s creatures, the voices of the seasons and the very rhythms of our planet. From delicate madrigals, to contemporary settings to evocations of native cultures, EarthSongs will resonate with listeners long after the final note has been sung.
