JazzReach: Miles Davis and The Blue Flame Incident

JazzReach: Miles Davis and The Blue Flame Incident

Featuring New York's Metta Quintet

A multi-media celebration of the groundbreaking music of the iconic trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur, Miles Davis.

Using jazz and 20th century America as a backdrop, The Blue Flame Incident (which alludes to one of Davis' earliest childhood memories) traverses the music of one of the most compelling, infinitely creative and trailblazing artists the music world has known.

JazzReach is an enterprising New York organization dedicated to educating children and adults in their appreciation of jazz. JazzReach's resident ensemble, The Metta Quintet, is comprised of some of today's brightest emerging jazz stars. 

These activities are supported, in part, with funds provided by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
