Wax On #1 Miles Davis
WAX ON #1 The revolutionary records and iconic artists that shaped jazz
Join the Improvised Music Company (IMC) and a curated panel of passionate music lovers as we delve into the story of jazz through some of its most iconic artists and their seminal records. Presented in association with The Record Spot, Dublin, and moderated by Irish Times music critic Cormac Larkin with a panel of jazz aficionados, WAX ON brings you on a journey through the life and recordings of some of the most influential and important artists of the jazz genre.
The first event of our new series, WAX ON #1 will be a listening party for some of Miles' most game-changing albums including 'Kind Of Blue', 'Bitches Brew' and 'On The Corner', as well as an opportunity to share stories of the life of this legendary figure of jazz.
Over six full decades, from his arrival on the national scene in 1945 until his death in 1991, Miles Davis made music that grew from an uncanny talent to hear the future and a headstrong desire to play it. From his beginnings in the circle of modern jazz, he came to intuit new worlds of sound and challenge. While the vast majority of musicians – jazz, rock, R&B, otherwise – find the experimental charge and imperviousness of youth eventually running down, Miles forever forged ahead, trusting and following instinct until the end.
WAX ON #1 promises to be a wonderful evening of musical appreciation and discussion for all jazz fans.
