Sold Out: Miles Davis Retrospective with Marcus Miller
March 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join the STUDIO Committee for an evening at Jazz at Lincoln Center with one of Miles Davis’ crucial collaborators – bassist Marcus Miller.
Miles Davis’ “electric period” (1969 – 1992) is one of the most influential and passionately debated eras in all of modern music. In this concert, Miller will take audiences through an eclectic body of work, starting with the moment Davis first discovered electric piano in 1969. Throughout the show, Miller and his band will lead a wide-ranging exploration of Davis’ bold experiments with jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop, and electronic fusions that continue to resonate and inform music today. This retrospective is no mere tribute; it is a passionate reengagement with ideas that changed the world of music, directed by one of the movement’s key players.
Attendees will enjoy a pre-concert discussion with Jazz at Lincoln Center’s staff, followed by Miller’s performance. Click here to RSVP. Please note that limited space is available. Members may purchase a maximum of two tickets at the member rate. Not a member yet? Join today!
About Marcus Miller: Much like Gil Evans and Wayne Shorter before him, Miller played an essential role in shaping Davis’ musical visions. Not only did he play bass on six of Davis’ studio albums, Miller also produced and composed almost every song on three of them, including the Grammy Award–winning Tutu. To this day, Miller is still the premier electric bassist, having recorded more than 500 albums as a leader and with legends such as Michael Jackson, Herbie Hancock, Frank Sinatra, George Benson, McCoy Tyner, Aretha Franklin, and LL Cool J.
