Sept. 30 MUSIC IN MOTION Atypical Arts is presenting a series of four music/film events at the 5 Points Theater – one each month, September-December. The first event is a multi-media presentation led by Miles’ biographer and well known music author/critic, Ashley Kahn, and will feature rare video footage of Miles during the time of his masterpiece Kind of Blue. Part listening session, part discussion, and an engaging demonstration of cultural detective work — celebrating Miles Davis, the first 15 years of his career, and what is arguably the most popular jazz album of all time. The discussion culminates with a lively question-and-answer session; the showing of a 25 minute video documentary The Making of Kind of Blue featuring insights shared by Herbie Hancock, Dave Liebman, Horace Silver, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, and others. 7 pm at the 5 Points Theater, 359-0047, www.5pointstheatre.com.
