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.

Parking was a long way away from the venue, so if you go, wear shoes which allow you to walk about 1/2 to 4/3 of a mile up and down inclines. The parking is free but very narrow parking spaces, try to get there a little early. The venue, is lovely, a sanctuary I believe.info • Apr 15 2013 star this tip starred
