Alvin Frazier Quintet in Tribute to Miles Davis 

When: Sun., May 1, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: $20
Alvin Frazier is a talented guy. He writes and plays music, he sings and he acts. While he's been working on making his way as an actor, music will always be his first love. His latest role finds him playing a member of Miles Davis’ band in the Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead. In a case of life imitating art, Frazier will be leading his own quintet in a tribute to Davis. If Frazier were able to assemble his own fantasy lineup, he would reach back into the past and enlist the services of a few legends that’ve passed on. “I would definitely say George Duke and Joe Sample on the keys,” Frazier carefully says as he mentally flips through his influences. “Stanley Clarke, George Benson and Bernard ‘Pretty’ Purdie on the drums. I like his style on the drums. Second bass player would be Louis Johnson from the Brothers Johnson." If that list is any indication of the talent Frazier works with, then NightTown is in for one hell of a show. (Emanuel Wallace)
