Neil Maya Quartet – 1959: The Golden Year of Jazz
Friday 28th February 2020
1959 is often considered an extremely influential year in the development of modern jazz with a number of new sub-genres within jazz coming to the fore in this year. 1959 spawned some of jazz’s finest albums of all times, including Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue and Dave Brubeck’s Time Out.
Neil has been developing the concept of creating a performance focusing on the music of this seminal year for two years, following the band’s very successful Brubeck Project.
