Rebirth Of The Cool

The Re-Birth Octet playing the music of Mile Davis’ album “The Birth Of The Cool”.

A jazz octet of award-winning south east based jazz musicians, reproducing and reinterpreting the music of Miles Davis and Gil Evans’ seminal album “Birth Of The Cool”.

Featuring unusual instrumentation (French horn, tuba, plus a variety of jazz instruments), this music is rarely, if ever, heard live. Evans’ innovative arrangements were influenced by classical music and the recordings marked a major development in post-bebop jazz and a milestone for the beginnings of ‘Cool’ AKA ‘West-Coast’ jazz.

The original arrangements have been carefully transcribed and arranged for this project, lengthening the original 3-4 minute tunes (for the 78rpm records of the day) into extended pieces of music that showcase the group’s broad array of local jazz talent.

Featuring Chris Coull (trumpet), Andy Panayi (alto saxophone), Jim Rattigan (French horn), Mike Pilley (trombone), Bob McKay (baritone saxophone), Gabriel Garrick (sousaphone) George Trebar (bass), and Joe Edwards (drums).

Jazz, milesdavis
