On May 12, trumpeter Nicholas Payton's ensemble highlights Davis' music from his latter quintetes and more. Then the concert moves into the electric Davis years ande the 'grand finale' featuring incomparable bass player and producer Marcus Miller, who played with Davis in his final years up until 1991.
