An Austin jazz icon will soon be performing a tribute concert to one of music’s greatest legends.
Trumpeter Jeff Lofton will be performing a concert honoring the 1950s era of Miles Davis and his quintet, including John Coltrane.
“That music from the 1950’s era set the standard for not just jazz, but lots of other musical forms,” Lofton said. “The importance of the 1950s sound and everything that leads up to Kind of Blue cannot be overstated.”
Lofton will be performing his Miles Davis tribute on Sept. 29 at the Scottish Rite in Downtown Austin. Visit JeffLofton.com for more information.
