- The Pete Long Orchestra
Kind of Blue and Porgy and Bess.
Our concerts of jazz classics from 1956, 1957 and 1958 proved very popular and for our 1959 show we’re celebrating Miles Davis.
60 years after its release Kind of Blue is still the best selling jazz album of all time and Porgy and Bess, Miles’s second collaboration with arranger and bandleader Gil Evans, features some of the most beautiful work of Miles’s entire career.
In addition, we’ll also be performing music from Miles and Gil’s Sketches of Spain and Miles Ahead.
