Miles Davis Prince of Darkness

A Tribute by the Australian Art Orchestra

Australia

The Australian Art Orchestra returns to its jazz roots with a work inspired by the legendary jazz trumpeter, composer and band leader Miles Davis. Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Davis was at the forefront of almost every major development in jazz from World War II to the 1990s.

Miles Davis: Prince of Darkness explores this extraordinary oeuvre through new arrangements of his seminal works, a performance of the original Gil Evans arrangement of Sketches of Spain (Concierto de Aranjuez), featuring Phil Slater and a work commissioned from Anthony Pateras offering an inspired take on how Miles Davis may have been composing were he with us today.
