Jazz Standard is thrilled to be hosting two gala nights celebrating the 60th an­niversary of Miles Davis and Gil Evans’ landmark 1958 collaboration Porgy and Bess. “Few other musical teams would have had the ability to remain true to the undiluted spirit and multifaceted nuance of this epic work. However, no other musical teams were Miles Davis and Gil Evans. It was Evans’ intimate knowledge of the composition as well as the performer that allowed him to so definitively capture the essence of both.” (AllMusic) Music
