This extraordinary group takes listeners on a voyage through the great music of Miles Davis, played with great fidelity to the original inspirational material but also with a definite modern twist inspired by their love for their music as well as their mastery of their instruments.
Made up of some of the most exciting musicians working on the jazz scene today, results an experience that absolutely cannot be missed. No greater tribute could be paid to such wonderful music than to continue to explore it and to reinterpret it for modern audiences to enjoy in all its glory.
Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has helped shape the sound of jazz, R&B and rock for more than four decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Parliament/Funkadelic to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa.
Israeli born, Niceberg has already teamed up with some of the top names on the New York jazz scene. Some of his collaborators include James Carter, Joel Frahm, Avishai Cohen (tp.) and Ari Hoenig just to name a few.
Strong elements of hard-bop, modern jazz and a touch of fusion are Niceberg's musical signature.
His passionate and incredibly sweeping music is full of soul and intensity. It coaxes and woos the listener to join his inspired musical journey.
One of the most talented and accomplished musicians of his generation, Grammy Award-winning bassist and composer Eric Revis has, over the past 15 years, become an important voice in jazz. Branford Marsalis states, “Eric’s sound is the sound of doom; big, thick, percussive.” Scores of musicians across various disciplines agree. Revis has performed and recorded with Betty Carter, Peter Brotzmann, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Steve Coleman, Ralph Peterson, Lionel Hampton, McCoy Tyner, Andrew Cyrille, and Tarbaby (the experimental trio he tri-leads with Orrin Evans and Nasheet Waits).
Justin Faulkner entered the jazz scene at the tender age of 13. Since then, he has compiled an impressive resume playing with the likes of Jimmy Heath, Orrin Evans, Terence Blanchard, Mingus Big Band, Jacky Terrasson, Christian McBride and since 2009 he is the drummer for the legendary Branford Marsalis Quartet.
