Electric Miles Ensemble

Fall 2019

Taught By: Adam Holzman

Section: A

CRN: 7422

Credits: 2

This ensemble will cover arrangements of mid-to-late 80’s Miles repertoire, including material from We Want Miles, You’re Under Arrest, Tutu, Amandala, and Live Around The World. The ensemble will use the music and format of Miles’ later bands as a framework for exploring fresh approaches to comping and soloing: modern rhythm section ideas, superimposing chords over static harmonies, polytonal street grooves, etc., will be explored. These ideas will be applied to other material, including student compositions.

By audition, at the instructor's discretion.
