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.

As others have mentioned the music was outstanding and the venue was perfect but I will point out a few shortcomings. The directions to the Rose Garden are not that obvious and you have to thread your way past the outdoor pool to get there. I did not realize that there are 3 tiers of ticket prices and that the General admission (Goldstar) is located only on the periphery of the seating (3 tables on either side). Next time I attend I would probably purchase preferred (reserved) seating. This event was sold out and it seemed our server was really hard pressed to take orders and deliver food and drinks, we finally had drink in hand at 6:45... Valet parking is $25 so we self parked for $5 around the side of the hotel, no problem there. Restrooms were a little bit of a hassle as it appeared that there were only two unisex rooms available by the poolside. As always, the quality of the music overcame any small nuisance factor..

The Chicago Tribune has awarded pianist/singer Judy Roberts the title Chicago’s Favorite Jazz Woman, yet she is also recognized as a worldwide jazz star thanks to the success of her international recordings and concert performances. From the Midwest to Phoenix to Singapore, Judy is best known for her fun-loving approach to an eclectic and extensive repertoire, her hard-swinging piano playing, her ability to combine lush and sensitive vocals with rapid-fire scat singing and for her unique ability to communicate with her audience in a relaxed and intimate style.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Ticket price includes two one-hour sets -- 6:00pm and 7:30pm.
Self parking is $10.
