When jazz pioneer, innovator and icon, the late Miles Davis, released Bitches Brew in 1970, the album continued his experimentation with various instrument groupings and genres of music. That groundbreaking recording also indicated to many of the musical “cats” that were in the midst of receiving their musical “comeuppance” that it was okay to amplify and electrify their music.
Pittsburgh musical icon Tony Campbell and his friends will be traveling on the “time machine called the present” when they perform the music from “Bitches Brew” tomorrow from 8PM-midnite at James Street Gastropub located at 422 Foreland St. Pittsburgh, PA 15212. 412.904.3335
Maestro Campbell will be joined by pianist Howie Alexander, drummer George Heid III, trumpeter Ian Gordon and bassist Tony DePaolis.
Campbell himself already a member of the Pittsburgh Jazz Hall-of-Fame, continues to stretch existing musical boundaries while simultaneously navigating each new era of listeners to a place; “where many jazz aficionados’” have never been. Get your eardrums ready. “Hearing” this music has never “tasted” so sweet.
