Jazz Roots: Steve Miller & Jimmie Vaughn - From Ma Rainey to Miles Davis

Very proud to have orchestrated a few charts for this show, along with Carlos Mata-Alvarez and Stephen Guerra!

From the Arsht Center Press Release:

When the music of Ma Rainey meets Miles Davis, expect the realms of blues and jazz to be out of this world!

Originally developed for and performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center this past season, renowned blues-rock guitarist, 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and life-long jazz fan Steve Miller will host a wide-ranging musical revue. Special guests include Jimmie Vaughan on guitar, Mike Flanigin on the Hammond B3 organ, jazz vocalist Brianna Thomas, and JAZZ ROOTS artistic advisor Shelly Berg on piano. Together with the Frost School of Music's Henry Mancini Institute Big Band, they will take a Blues Journey from Ma Rainey to Miles Davis!
