Jenny Maybee (piano, vocals) and Nick Phillips (trumpet) will be joined by Dan Feiszli (bass) and David Rokeach (drums) to present a tribute to Miles Davis, for Jim Bennett’s In the Moment Concert Series. This special concert celebrates the enduring and vast musical legacy of Miles Davis -- from mid-century modern jazz classics to latter-20th-century Davis hits. Featuring new arrangements of Miles Davis classics and songs celebrating the spirit of Miles, the Quartet leaves plenty of room for fresh in-the-moment innovation.

Rounding out the sets at Musically Minded Academy, the Maybee/Phillips Quartet will also perform choice selections from Haiku, lauded by the press as “a thrilling, intimate, very delicate dialogue…close to perfection” and “an 11-track rarity of pristine playing, beautiful vocals and original compositions” that is “in the same league as jazz legends Billie Holiday and Chet Baker."

Part of KCSM's In the Moment Concert Series, produced by Jim Bennett, presented by Jazz in the Neighborhood and Musically Minded Academy.

Cost: $18 in advance, $20 at the door
