To bring the TD Jazz season to a powerful close, Arts Commons Presents announces the addition of Miles Electric Band on April 27, 2017 in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Breathing new life into the music of Davis’ electric period, the Miles Electric Band has an all-star jazz line-up led by Grammy® winning drummer, former bandmate and nephew of the late jazz icon Vincent Wilburn, Jr. Performing alongside him are two-time Grammy® nominee Robert Irving III on piano; legendary P-funk guitarist Blackbyrd McKnight; acclaimed percussionist Munyungo Jackson; saxophonist Antoine Roney (Lenny Kravitz, Elvin Jones), The Rolling Stones bassist Darryl Jones; programmer/re-mixer DJ Logic and Grammy® nominated trumpeter Christian Scott.
“I'm blessed to share the stage with these stellar musicians interpreting the music of Miles Davis. Collectively, these global artists who span generations and genres, are dedicated and committed to preserving the artistic legacy of Miles,” says Vince Wilburn, Jr. “Like Miles, they continue to push the cultural envelope forward, with an eclectic fusion of jazz, rock, hip hop and world music, proving that the music of Miles will always transcend space and time.”

The Jack Singer Concert Hall in Arts Commons is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America. Home of Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, BD&P World Music, and TD Jazz, audiences are treated to some of the world's finest musical events. The hall also welcomes a spectrum of events each season from TED talks and National Geographic speakers, to wedding dinners on the stage and rock stars on tour.
Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
