The 1957 album Birth of the Cool was the result of a creative collaboration between then up-and-coming trumpeter Miles Davis and innovative arranger Gil Evans. Drawing upon the influences of bebop and European impressionism and scored for an unusual instrumental nonet, this recording imagined a new future for jazz. An ensemble of UWGB music faculty and friends will recreate the album live from the restored manuscript.
History Professor Clif Ganyard will offer historical perspective and commentary on the landmark recordings, and Music Professor Adam Gaines will give a performer’s view of the music.
Date: Wednesday, Nov 29 at 6:30pm
