Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre
The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and jazz go hand in hand. Over the last decade the orchestra have shared the stage or paid tribute to many masters of the jazz world including Herbie Hancock, Lalo Schifrin, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong.
In 2011, the ASO will pay tribute to the most influential musician of the 20th century in Miles Davis whose career lasted more than 50 years, defied critics and audiences alike, showing that through constant reinvention, he was more than a jazz musician. Miles Davis was a cultural icon, a man whose musicianship and style were constantly ahead of the times. The ASO performs music from Miles Davis with Australian jazz royalty in the one and only James Morrison in an über cool tribute to the ̒Prince of Darkness’ Miles Davis.
