PYJAEN present:
Miles Davis' Tutu

Sunday 30th September

Fast-rising London based quintet PYJAEN, featuring Dylan Jones on trumpet, are invited to perform Miles Davis’ 1986 masterpiece Tutu in its entirety, as well as a selection of their own compositions.

When analysing Davis’ hugely influential back catalogue, it may be easy to overlook Tutu. An album that was at one point destined to be a collaboration with Prince, it was Miles’ final definitive statement and the record responsible for dragging jazz into the 80’s.

Much like Kind Of Blue and Bitches Brew, Tutu is a hugely revolutionary album. Instead of recording the album with live instruments and a band, Davis recorded his trumpet parts over a lush electronic soundscape, produced from a battery of samplers, synthesisers, sequencers and drum machines. Although synthesisers had long been used in jazz, no jazz artist had ever made an album like Tutu.

With this record, Davis again changed the story of jazz trying to reflect the society at that moment in the music, something which mirrors the current narrative of the booming London jazz scene.
