Widely considered the 20th century’s most influential jazz musician, Miles Davis was at the forefront of the development of the American jazz music tradition. As a bandleader, Davis garnered and mentored some of the most prominent musicians of the 20th century, who each went on to redefine music in their own right.
“Miles Smiles” brings together an all-star cast of Miles Davis alumni to redefine yet again: Guitarist Larry Coryell, organist Joey DeFrancesco, Rolling Stones bassist Darryl Jones, Omar Hakim (formerly of the Weather Report and Sting's Blue Turtles band), and Miles Davis’ sole trumpet protégé Wallace Roney.
