Terry Seabrook’s Milestones play Kind of Blue
“This was arguably the best concert I have heard in Gateshead Town Hall since Sonny Stitt took it apart in the 1960s . . ” – Bebop Spoken Here
Miles Davis and his sidemen made musical history when they recorded the iconic album Kind of Blue. They created a unique atmosphere of understated themes and improvisation and Kind of Blue went on to become one of the greatest and best-loved jazz recordings of all time.
More than sixty years on, Terry Seabrook has assembled an all-star sextet, Milestones, to revisit the album and celebrate the music of Miles Davis. The band has toured extensively at clubs and festivals around the U.K.
The line-up reads like a who’s who of British jazz, with the fabulous Martin Shaw taking on the Miles role. The band pays due respect to Miles’ original music whilst allowing the musicians to showcase their own brilliance and improvisational skills.
