Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 2020)

Miles Ahead and Birth of the Cool with SNJO.


Miles Davis was one of the coolest figures in jazz and a constant innovator. Together with Gil Evans, Miles created Birth of the Cool and Miles Ahead: two of the greatest jazz milestones of the 1940 / 50s that shaped new movements in jazz and influences music even today.
Sardinian trumpet master, Paolo Fresu, joins the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra in paying tribute to Miles, bringing these two jazz gems to the live stage with direct emotion, quiet power and vivid orchestral colour.
Feb. 21 Caird Hall, Dundee.
Feb. 22 Queen's Hall Edinburgh.
