The Music Hall Teams Up with MOJA Arts Festival to present Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.)

M&C Moja Flyer 4x6 frontThe Charleston Music Hall is very excited to be a part of the MOJA Arts Festival this year.  RLO, The Jazz Diva, and Quentin Talley will be presenting Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.)  at the Charleston Music Hall Sunday, Sept. 29 at 7 PM.

This show captures the galvanizing energy of the 1950′s, an element of time when American society was rapidly changing. During this era, jazz was the soundtrack to a new social revolution. And at the forefront of jazz music was trumpet blaring Miles Davis and skillful saxophonist John Coltrane, who partnered to make a wondrous residual slide in soundscapes that would unleash their names to be forever known as jazz legends.  Award winning actors, musicians, and poets take you on a journey through the artists’ lives and the legacy they left behind. 

For this production, award winning poets and musicians, Concrete Generation and The Stephen Gordon Group, articulate the noteworthy shift in music history.
Miles & Coltrane: Blue(.) recently returned from The 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with 5 star reviews and returns to Charleston after a successful run at The Piccolo Spoleto Festival in 2012!
