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.

It was very original & thought provoking. The program gave an excellent introduction regarding the dance and settings. This was very helpful and gave an understanding to appreciating the action on the stage. Unfortunately, the audience had a sufficient number of idiots who couldn't contain their rather loud laughter over the unusual moves. Next to me were a popcorn eater and a laughing hyena. Perhaps, they thought this was going to be a teen age flick.
This is the only West Coast engagement during the company’s U.S. debut tour.
