Celebrating the life and work of the great Miles Davis is no easy task, which is why POM utilises Davis’ music as a reference point to build upon. Phelps has always cited Davis as one of his greatest inspirations and aims to breathe new life into his music with this project.
Joining Phelps will be American tenor saxophone star Brandon Allen. The rhythm section consists of three of the busiest men on the UK jazz scene: Rick Simpson (piano), Mark Lewandowski (bass) and Shane Forbes (drums). Tonight you will hear classics and also beautiful compositions not typically synonymous with the Davis cannon, all painted with a colourful contemporary brush.
