October 2012 SFJAZZ Hotplate Mix

This month's SFJAZZ Hotplate couldn't be any more anticipated with local trumpeter John Worley paying tribute to one of jazz music's greatest iconic musicians, Miles Davis. This event will take place this Thursday night at Amnesia (853 Valencia Street) with DJ Pat Les Stache starting things off spinning a choice selection of fifties and sixties era Hard Bop jazz gems roughly around 8pm. The evening will also include the Front Burner multi-media session with SFJAZZ Education Director Rebeca MauleĆ³n on the fascinating life and times of the legendary jazz artist.

With a career span of 50 years, it is practically impossible to sum up Miles Davis’ career in just one hour long audio exploration. Therefore, this month's SFJAZZ Hotplate mix consists of a choice selection of personal favorites from both of Miles Davis' two great quintets that he led during the fifties and early sixties. With one listen, it should be easy to understand why Rolling Stone proclaimed the trumpeter, composer and bandleader as "one of the greatest innovators in jazz". ENJOY!
