Kindred Spirits of the Horn: Corey Wilkes Celebrates Miles Davis and Roy Eldridge
Known for igniting the spark that became Bebop, Roy Eldridge and Miles Davis’ influences also loom large in the multi-directional work of trumpeter Corey Wilkes. Past meets future in a centennial tribute to the men who set the standard for the modern jazz trumpet. Wilkes' Improvised Soul Projekt will premiere a new work in collaboration with electronics artist and DJ Osunlade and his Chicago cohorts Robert Irving III, De'Sean Jones, Fareed Haque, Junius Paul, Kahil El Zabar and Makaya McCraven.
