The Barcelona International Jazz Festival will be paying homage to the album ‘Kind of Blue’, by the trumpet player and composer ‘Miles Davis’, considered the most important work in this musical style.
Released 50 years ago, the album is one of the great musical works of all time and is still a touchstone in Jazz today.
Also taking part in the festival will be Wayne Shorter, a member of the Miles Davis quintet during the 1960s, and Marcus Miller, who co-composed the legendary Tutu’ album with Miles, as well as great female singers like Cassandra Wilson and Concha Buika.
This time the festival, which will taking place from 18 October to 6 December, will be flooding the city with a record number of concerts – over 70 – and a stellar one to finish with at one of the most legendary halls in North American jazz, the New York Jazz Standard.
The concerts will be performed at fifteen different venues, including the Auditori, Luz de Gas, Jamboree, Palau de la Música and Harlem Jazz Club.
