“A fearsome concentration of Irish jazz talent.” – The Sunday Tribune
Eighteen years on since his passing, Miles Davis casts a long shadow into jazz’s second century, and over a career that spanned five decades his restless music reached peaks of creativity that few have seen since. Among many high watermarks, in his productive middle years Miles served notice that a major shift in musical aesthetics was underway, bringing forth a series of electric albums whose impact has not yet subsided in creative music of all persuasions. Last heard taking no prisoners at The Electric Picnic 08, Electric Miles convenes the elite of Irish jazz including saxophonist Michael Buckley and drummer Sean Carpio in a scenery chewing workout on the vintage 1970s Miles of the Bitches Brew and In a Silent Way period. It’s the spirit, not the letter of Miles that matters and this will be no arid tribute of worthy reconstruction. Sparks fly.
