RE-BIRTH OF THE COOL
Astonishingly it seems re-incarnation lives on in the world
of jazz. On Saturday 22nd May 2004 in the Chelsea Arts Club
London, the cool sounds of Miles Davis were heard once again.
In 1949, in the company of some jazz greats; Gerry Mulligan,
Max Roach, Lee Konitz, Kai Winding et al Miles Davis produced
one of the greatest jazz albums ever: "Birth of the Cool".
Simon Whiteside with his swinging eleven piece jazz ensemble,
SW-IX, have captured that sound and will play live at the
PARADISE JAZZ FESTIVAL TOUR 2004.
Listen to SW-IX
