In this edition of Views & Brews, KUT’s Rebecca McInroy joins Rabbi and jazz historian Neil Blumofe, and a live jazz quintet, for a night of great conversation and live music focusing on Miles Davis’ Second Quintet. In all Miles Davis represents, he was also a master teacher and inspired generations of instrumentalists. In the second half of the 60’s how did Davis’ Second Quintet respond to free jazz, and turbulent times? And what does this response teach us today?
Featuring the all-star ensemble: David Young, trumpet; Shelley Carrol, saxophone; Ben Irom, piano; Roscoe Beck, bass; Brannen Temple, drums; and Rabbi Neil Blumofe in conversation with KUT’s Rebecca McInroy.
