Jazz at the MACC: Music of Miles Davis

Jazz at the MACC: Music of Miles Davis

The Gulf Coast Jazz Collective is opening it’s 3rd season with the music of one the Jazz world’s most important innovators – Miles Davis. Miles took part in almost every era of jazz including bebop, hard bop, cool jazz and fusion. As usual, GCJC will be playing Mile’s music with our own flavor. That means high energy, excitement, and a ton of fun. We’ll be featuring the phenomenal trumpeter James Suggs from St. Petersburg, FL to play the role Miles. Also featuring Tampa Bay area saxophonist Aaron West in the roles of Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley, and John Coltrane.
