Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was a Jazz icon and a musical genius. Many considered him as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century

Miles Davis was responsible for changing the face of Jazz music three or four times, including bebop, cool Jazz, Jazz fusion and a mixture Jazz and hip-hop.

Many great Jazz musicians known today rose to prominence as members of Davis' ensembles, including saxophonists Gerry Mulligan, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, George Coleman, Wayne Shorter, Dave Liebman, Branford Marsalis and Kenny Garrett; trombonist J. J. Johnson; pianists Horace Silver, Red Garland, Wynton Kelly, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, and Keith Jarrett; guitarists John McLaughlin, John Scofield and Mike Stern; bassists Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, Dave Holland, Marcus Miller and Darryl Jones; and drummers Philly Joe Jones, Jimmy Cobb, Tony Williams, Billy Cobham, Jack DeJohnette, and Al Foster.

His album Kind of Blue, released in 1959, is the greatest selling Jazz album in history.

Blues File: Story Of A Song: Afro Blue

From WXPN | Part of the Blues File series | 04:31

A look at "Afro Blue" in its many incarnations over the decades

Santamaria_small Cuban percussionist Mongo Santamaria's "Afro Blue" has challenged & fascinated musicians for decades. John Coltrane did a number of versions of it, including a 38-minute performance in Japan in 1966. Oscar Brown, Jr. accomplished the daunting task of writing lyrics for it that captured and enhanced its alluring quality. Distinctive vocalist Abbey Lincoln recorded Brown's version on her album "Abbey Is Blue" in 1959. With and without lyrics, Afro Blue has been covered by musicians as diverse as Tito Puente and Derek Trucks, and each new version seems to offer a fresh vision of this remarkable Afro-Cuban composition.

Blues File: Koko Taylor - Remembrance

From WXPN | Part of the Blues File series | 06:00

A remembrance of the late Koko Taylor. Career review includes her rare first recording.

Koko_small Koko Taylor has died at age 80. Cora Walton grew up in Shelby County TN near Memphis and was known as Koko because of her fondness for chocolate. (early in her career it was spelled "Cocoa" but morphed into "Koko" in the early 60's). She had arrived in the windy city in her late teens. She and husband Robert "Pops" Taylor had only pocket change and a box of crackers and took whatever work they could find. Her first record was recorded without her knowledge that it was being recorded in 1961. The year after she received $25 in royalties for it. Koko hit the Chicago blues clubs in the early 1960s and met Willie Dixon who worked with her on the USA label for her first real record, Honky Tonk in 1963. Koko then went with Dixon to Chess and cut "I Got What It Takes". In 1965 she recorded her biggest hit "Wang Dang Doodle" for Chess; it was the label's last major blues hit. After "Wang Dang Doodle" Chess Records slipped and Koko's career with it. She recorded in Europe for The Black & Blue label in 1973 during what might be called The Eclipse Of The Blues in the States. In 1975, Koko signed with the fledgling blues label Alligator. Her first album was called "I Got What It Takes" -- which had been her first song for Chess years before. Taylor's and Alligator's fortunes slowly rose together. Chicago blues was reviving and growing. Koko Taylor was singing it like no one else. By the mid-80's she was called "Queen Of The Blues" and no one disputed the claim. In this century she has battled severe health problems. Her last album "Old School" came out in 2007 after a seven-year absence from the studio, but it was fresh with vocal power, and a few of her own songs such as "Piece Of Man." Koko's magnitude as a blues singer is beyond measure.

KUT's Views and Brews: Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn and The Art of Invisibility

From KUT | Part of the KUT's Views and Brews Remix series | 59:00

Rabbi Neil Blumofe joins KUT host Rebecca McInroy along with a live jazz sextet for an evening of discussion and live music to explore the unique relationship of jazz legends Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn.

Ellingtonprx_small Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn and The Art of Invisibility

Billy Strayhorn, a long time muse and collaborator for the great bandleader Duke Ellington, brought depth and a languid power to the already sophisticated sound of Ellington’s orchestra.  Aching for love and significance, Strayhorn was openly gay in a time of repression and bias, composing ballads filled with longing and disarming vulnerability, which demanded the full attention of both the listener and the performer.

How do we strive when circumstances are stacked against us?  How do we make the best of our situation as we continue to dream?  How do we continue to hold out hope for consequential love, as we smolder?  Sometimes what we need most, is hidden, right in front of us, in plain sight.

During this evening, we engaged in both a spirited discussion about Strayhorn and his relationships to Ellington -- discussing his music, and his legacy — and we enjoyed superlative live music with Ephraim Owens (trumpet), Brannen Temple (drums), Red Young (piano), Chris Maresh (bass), Andre Hayward (trombone) and Sam Lipman (Saxaphone).

Both playing drums and out in the world, Art Blakey produced a powerfully important original sound, the influence of which has lasted for generations. Blakey was a mentor to many musicians and is considered to be a developer of much of the jazz landscape for the past 50 years, as he consistently led his Jazz Messengers. With a steady and unwavering practice, he produced a revolution.

Tumblr_lsx3h7z6o71qzn0deo1_1280_small What is in a sound? What qualities are necessary to lead a band for many decades?

KUT's Views and Brews: Thelonious Monk and The Art of Hesitation

From KUT | Part of the KUT's Views and Brews Remix series | 59:04

Thelonious Monk is an original and unique voice in the shaping and the sound of American music. Both his compositions and his inimitable piano playing continue to confound and resound decades after their inception.

Thel_small

Thelonious Monk is an original and unique voice in the shaping and the sound of American music. Both his compositions and his inimitable piano playing continue to confound and resound decades after their inception, bringing us to ask questions — how far can one go when listening to your own muse? Does the artist have a responsibility to instruct while creating? Can art just be enjoyed or does it have to vex to be effective? When looking to swing, how important is rhythm? What is said in the silences? These are the questions we set out to explore during what proved to be an inspirational night of ideas and music at the Cactus Cafe.

Listen to some of the highlights from the event with KUT's Views and Brews Remix featuring Rabbi Neil Blumofe in discussion with KUT’s Rebecca McInroy along with musicians Rich Harney (piano) Roscoe Beck (bass) Brannen Temple (drums) and Sam Lipman (Saxophone) and special guest Ephraim Owens (trumpet).

KUT's Views and Brews: Charles Mingus and The Art of Enigma

From KUT | Part of the KUT's Views and Brews Remix series | 59:01

Join us for lively discussion and great live music as KUT's Rebecca McInroy and rabbi Neil Blumofe take a look back at the life and artistry of the late jazz legend Charles Mingus with a remix of KUT's Views and Brews on Charles Mingus and the Art of Enigma.

Mingusprx_small

Charles Mingus is considered one of the most creative and original voices in American jazz. Uniquely sensitive to the plight of the dispossessed, he challenged his musical ensembles to be improvisatory acts of collective inspiration — responding to the matters of the moment.

The music that Mingus wrote was rooted in standard musical forms and grounded in the blues. At KUT’s Views and Brews Rabbi Neil Blumofe and KUT’s Rebecca McInroy looked at how interpretation of these forms in performance might bring about the transformation of a musician, a listener, and potentially, the world.

The Cactus was packed (standing room only) and the music performed by our all-star quintet was hot! We discussed Mingus, his music, his relationships with his musicians and audience, as well as the agony and the ecstasy he expended in communicating his vision.

KUT's Views and Brews: Miles Davis and the Making of Kind of Blue

From KUT | Part of the KUT's Views and Brews Remix series | 01:58:04

As part of KUT’s Views and Brews series we engaged in a spirited discussion about Miles, his music, his relationships with his musicians, and the good and evil expended in the art of creation — and we enjoyed the incredible live music inspired by his work. Listen back to our two part series on Miles Davis and the Making of Kind of Blue.

It was an amazing evening at the Cactus Cafe September 20th, when KUT’s Views and Brews discussed Miles Davis and the Making of Kind of Blue: Jazz and the Art of Indirection. 

Miles Davis was known as the master of understatement. In his seminal work, Kind of Blue (1959), he helped to define a concept of cool that remains relevant. What lurks behind an image? What music is expressed in the notes that are not played?

But with Miles Ahead, director and star Don Cheadle created a portrait of Miles Davis that the legendary trumpeter would have loved to be a part of. 

Josh Jackson hosts an hour of conversation with Don Cheadle, Miles' son Erin Davis, nephew Vince Wilburn, Jr. and film score composer Robert Glasper.

During this broadcast we will explore just one hour of the genius of this man, Miles Davis.
