Around the Blogs: Miles...1950...Birdland

Feb 21, 2012

Three words that should make jazz fans tremble with joy: Miles....1950...Birdland.

Don't miss a chance to grab a rare listen to “Mile Davis: A Very Special Concert - WNYC Jazz Festival from Birdland, NY, NY 2-18-50” being featured on the always interesting Big O site. The band for this amazing evening was a who’s who of the jazz scene as it left be-bop and moved on to cooler sounds: Miles Davis on trumpet; Stan Getz on sax; Art Blakey on drums; JJ Johnson on trombone; Tadd Dameron on piano; and Gene Ramsey on bass. Special guests hit the stage that night as well – guitarist Dick Hyman, sax players Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt, and drummer Max Roach.
