Monday, April 27, 4tet and More will reassemble at West Virginia State University to perform the Miles Davis classic, Bitches Brew, in its entirety. You may recall that our most recent episode of Radio Free Charleston brought you rehearsal footage and interviews with members of the band. Now you get one more chance to experience this musically intimidating undertaking live. We’re bringing you RFC 208 again tonight, just to get you all excited. This will be your last chance to hear 4tet and More take on Bitches Brew.
Bitches Brew is a studio double album by jazz musician Miles Davis, released in April 1970 on Columbia Records. The album continued his experimentation with electric instruments previously featured on his critically acclaimed In a Silent Way album. With the use of these instruments, such as the electric piano and guitar, Davis rejected traditional jazz rhythms in favor of a looser, rock-influenced improvisational style.”
4tet’s performance will take place at West Virginia State University, April 27, 2015 at 7:30 PM. You can learn more about this project in our original production notes HERE.
