September 27, 2011

Trumpeter, composer and band leader Miles Davis was one of the most innovative and influential figures in jazz. On Saturday, the Krannert Center in Urbana will present "The Miles Davis Experience: 1949-1959," featuring the Ambrose Akinmusire Quintet. I'll talk with Mr. Akinmusire on the Tuesday edition of "Live and Local," and we'll preview Thursday's concert by the Illinois State University Symphony Orchestra.
