Join us for a special presentation of the amazing
Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.) play on Saturday, May 9th,
at 7pm at the International Civil Rights Museum in
Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.) captures the galvanizing
energy of the 1950′s, an element of time when
American society was rapidly changing. During this
era, jazz was the soundtrack to a new social
revolution. And at the forefront of jazz music was
trumpet blaring Miles Davis and skillful saxophonist
John Coltrane, who partnered to make a wondrous
residual slide in soundscapes that would unleash
their names to be forever known as jazz legends.
Award winning actors, musicians, and poets
articulate this noteworthy shift in music history,
taking you on a journey through the artists’ lives and
the legacy they left behind.
