"Larry McDonough is an original much in the tradition of Dave Brubeck, and McDonough's piano stylings are intimate and innovative."
– Jazz Review
Kind of Blue brought together seven now-legendary musicians in the prime of their careers: tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, alto saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, pianists Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, drummer Jimmy Cobb and, of course, trumpeter Miles Davis.
The evening will start with a set of music composed by the individual band members from that iconic album (prior to their 1959 recording date), followed by music from the complete Kind of Blue record, and conclude with music created by the individual musicians after they recorded this legendary work.
