Carl Woideck Jazz Heritage Project: Live at the Black Hawk: Miles Davis, 1961

When Miles Davis brought his group to San Francisco's Black Hawk night club in 1961, he was near the peak of his popular success. His trumpet playing was extremely fluent, by turns hot, cool, funky and lyrical. His saxophonist was a veteran of bop and hard bop. Davis's piano-bass-drum team had been in place for two years, and was later called "the gold standard for straight-ahead, postwar jazz rhythm" by the New York Times. Carl Woideck's Jazz Heritage Project will revisit the classic recordings made by this classic Davis quintet at an intimate night club. Songs include "Oleo", "On Green Dolphin Street", "So What", and "Bye Bye Blackbird". Shedd Presents Series Ticketing: Purchase at The Shedd Institute Ticket Office (541-434-7000, 868 High Street).
