A Tribute to Miles Davis – May 7th- May 14th, 2022

Dayna Stephens & Giveton Gelin (New York)

Music that goes straight to your soul in this special tribute to the works of Miles Davis!

There was no musical revolutionary or entrepreneur quite like Miles Davis. He was a trumpeter, who over his long career created the “Be-bop” style, in which the improvising soloist was at the center, changing and reforming the jazz scene. He was at the forefront of the cool jazz movement, as well other styles, serving as band leader and leaving his musical impression on all those that he played with.

The Juilliard School graduated Giveton Gelin has played with pioneers of the NY jazz scene such as Bobby Watson, Roy Hargrove, Sullivan Fortner, Wynton Marsalis, and Jon Batiste. Additionally, the 22-year-old trumpeter has received tutelage from some of the world’s greatest including Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton and is the protege of the late Roy Hargrove.

The Bahamas-native released his debut, True Design, receiving warm reviews and critical mention from Jazziz, WBGO, and more; not to mention, he was awarded the 2020 LetterOne Rising Star Jazz Award, and ASCAP’s Herb Alpert Award. Ultimately, Gelin’s artistic vision is to pay tribute to his ancestors and unify others by incorporating universal human experiences into sound and brings forth a new narrative to jazz music.

His collaboration with Dayna Stephens brings out new colors in Miles Davis’s music, as well as the hearty musical expression associated with Davis.

This is a unique production for the Hot Jazz series.
