Live Jazz: Bitches Brew Remix at the Sunset Junction Festival

By Devon Wendell

There have been many Miles Davis tribute bands over the years that have primarily focused on capturing Davis’ exact sound rather that the creative spirit and energy of the late musical pioneer. This was not the case with the Mile Davis Bitches Brew Remix performance Saturday night at the Sunset Junction Festival.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Davis’s jazz/rock experimental album masterpiece Bitches Brew, Davis’s nephew - drummer Vince Wilburn Jr. - led an all star band which featured Wallace Roney, trumpet, Antoine Roney, sax, and bass clarinet, Darryl Jones, bass, Dewayne "Blackbyrd" Mcknight, electric guitar, Fausto Cuevas III, hand drum, Deron Johnson, keyboards, Badal Roy, tablas and hand drums, DJ Rocc, turntables and Wilburn Jr. on trap drums.
