MILES DAVIS' KIND OF BLUE WITH SHEILA MAURICE-GREY
London-based trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey, also known as Ms Maurice, performs Miles Davis' beloved Kind Of Blue in its entirety alongside an all-star group of musicians.
It's difficult to express the importance of Davis' influence to the world of jazz, with a career spanning over five decades over which time he introduced many major stylistic developments to the art form.
In 1959, he recorded what is widely regarded as his most triumphant album Kind of Blue with his then working sextet. The album has gone to become the highest selling jazz album of all time, going quadruple platinum. It was further honoured by the House of Representatives in December 2009 when they voted 409 - 0 in favour of naming the album a national treasure.
Ms Maurice is the bandleader for KOKOROKO and plays in fast-rising band Nérija. Her music is heavily influenced by her London upbringing, and we can't wait to hear her present a stunning tribute to this incredible album.
