Miles Davies: The 1950's and Beyond

  • Ffresh Wales Millenium Centre, Bute Place, Cardiff CF10 5AL (map)

Gethin Liddington trumpet
Dave Jones piano
Ashley John Long double bass
Ian Poole drums

By using the music of Miles Davis as a reference point the quartet will explore the rich melting pot of styles and influences that came together to help create the sound of jazz in 1950’s and beyond. This sound helped shape and mold creative music and continues to do so to this day.

By playing some familiar tunes with arrangements inspired by Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Lee Morgan and Terrence Blanchard they produce a tasteful blend of soul, funk and bebop. The range of material moves from the 1950’s up to the present day.

The quartet is comprised of some of Cardiff's finest musicians and features Gethin Liddington on trumpet and flugelhorn, Dave Jones on piano, Ashley John Long on bass and Ian Poole on drums.
