KJO Tribute to Miles Davis Bitches Brew

Bitches Brew was one of the great landmarks in the career of the extraordinary Miles Davis. The break from traditional jazz instrumentation and rhythm that began with In A Silent Way was made emphatic with Bitches Brew. Miles had embraced electric instrumentation and rhythms removed from even his most progressive recordings of the preceeding decade. The album was nothing short of revolutionary, and it influenced forever the worlds of jazz, rock and funk. Bassist Matt Nelson is one of Knoxville’s most creative and adventurous music, and he and his group will explore this classic under the sponsorship of the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra. Mike Baggetta will be back on guitar. Updates to follow. This will be an exciting evening to be sure!
