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.

A spectacular event put on by a small college's music department with extremely talented students. From the beginning set of Revolutionary War-time tunes (including Yankee Doodle Dandy) through a resounding presentation of the 1812 Overture, including an exploding cannon this was a fantastic reminder of why there is not an audio system or set of CD's that can come close to replacing a live orchestra in a specially designed for music venue. From the toe-tapping patriotic tunes of George M Cohan to the eerie sounds of helicopters landing on a mountain top in Korea and the haunting tune that was used at Ronald Reagan's memorial service the audience was enraptured by this extremely talented and disciplined group of college students.
The next time a music event comes up at the Concordia University Center for Worship and Performing Arts (Irvine, CA) featuring any of their musical groups - don't miss it!
