The 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.
“Jazz lovers will appreciate this loving homage to two great musicians; non jazz lovers will be entranced by the raw beauty of the music and may be (just as this reviewer) was converted. Exquiste.” – Eilidh Johnstone, Three Weeks Edinburgh
“Miles & Coltrane will get in your veins… A mesmerizing testament to the transcendence of Davis’ and Coltrane’s music. Miles and Coltrane: Blue is like going to church — almost.” – Duffy Lewis, Charleston City Paper
