Quotes & Highlights
“As adept, talented and inventive as Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the Luckman Jazz Orchestra is fully capable of establishing a similarly important bastion for jazz on the West Coast.” —Los Angeles Times
Charles Owens and the Luckman Jazz Orchestra honor the legacy of Miles Davis in this tribute concert to the great jazz legend.
Davis is considered to be one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century – as a trumpeter, he is part of a storied line of players that includes Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie. But Davis didn’t just play, he was also brilliant band leader in his own right and a composer who continued to change and try different styles of music throughout his extensive career. He played on early bebop records, and was later influential in the development of modal jazz and jazz fusion.
On this special evening, the Luckman Jazz Orchestra will honor Davis’ musical influence the best way it knows how. The Los Angeles Times writes, “As adept, talented and inventive as Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the Luckman Jazz Orchestra is fully capable of establishing a similarly important bastion for jazz on the West Coast.”
