Art of Jazz–Miles Davis Tribute Band 4pm
April 28, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$10 – $17
4:00-6:30 Kevin Woods/Josh Cook Quintet—Tribute to Miles Davis
Northwest jazz scene stalwarts trumpeter Kevin Woods and tenor saxophonist Josh Cook joined
forces to present the music of the legendary groups led by Miles Davis. The group, which
includes bassist Roger Yamashita, drummer Jud Sherwood, and pianist Bill Anschell, effortlessly
interprets classic tunes from the Davis songbook with one foot planted in tradition and the
other in the contemporary. From beautiful ballads to burnin’ up tempos, this group has
something for every jazz fan. Kevin Woods is quickly emerging as one of the most melodic and
emotive voices in improvised music in the Northwest. His passion for both performance and
education have made him in demand as a leader and a sideman as well as a composer, arranger
and clinician. Kevin’s four albums as a leader have received praise and international air-play. He
serves as the Director of Jazz Studies at Western Washington University.Josh is a jazz
saxophonist based in the Pacific Northwest. He’s a Phoenix native, but has lived and performed
from New York City to Okinawa, Japan. He performs regularly between Bellingham and Seattle
in a variety of settings. Josh can be heard on numerous recordings and has performed with a
who’s who of artists including Bill Watrous, Don Menza, Marvin Stamm, Ernie Watts, Eric
Marienthal, and country music legends, The Oak Ridge Boys.
