About This Event
Recorded on May 25, 2019
Fred Forney-trumpet, Brice Winston-tenor sax, Nick Manson-piano, Chris Finet-bass, Dom Moio-drums
Long-time Valley first-call trumpeter Fred Forney pays homage to nine-time Grammy Award winner Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991). For over 50 years, Miles has been considered one of the leading innovators in the evolution of jazz music, pioneering Bop, Cool, Hard Bop, Avant Garde and Fusion.
This special celebration for Miles includes music from the albums Kind of Blue, Porgy and Bess, ESP, Round Midnight, Cookin’ and compositions by Miles’ sidemen during the 1950s and early 60s.
The Fred Forney Quintet features veterans Brice Winston (tenor), Nick Manson (piano), Chris Finet (bass) and Dom Moio (drums). The music is grooving, hot, cool, blues, expression and innovation.
Whether new to jazz or devotee, this show from The Nash archives is a must see!
