Carl Woideck Quintet: The Uncovered Miles Davis

  • The Shedd Institute for the Arts

Miles Davis was not only a trumpeter and a bandleader; he was also a composer. Davis pieces like "So What", "All Blues" and "Milestones" have been covered—in other words, re-recorded—by hundreds if not thousands of jazz musicians. For this concert, Carl Woideck and friends will instead explore some of Miles Davis' seldom-covered compositions, focusing on the years 1967 and 1968. Among the pieces will be "Fun", "Water On The Pond", and the centerpiece of the concert, the epic "Circle In The Round". This was time that Davis was experimenting with using alternative keyboards like celeste and electric piano, and for the first time, adding a guitar to his basic group. Join saxophonist Woideck, trumpeter Tony Glausi, guitarist Michael Radliff, keyboardist Torrey Newhart, bassist Sean Peterson, and drummer Adam Carlson for an unforgettable night of rare Miles Davis.

This concert is eligible for The Shedd's Free Shedd Jazz Student Ticket program, which makes a limited number of free tickets to 2016-17 Shedd jazz concerts available to students elementary through college. The program is made possible by a grant from Chamber Music America and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Contact The Shedd Ticket Office for information.
