Grammy Award winning pianist, producer, composer and Blue Note recording artist Robert Glasper and Grammy-winning journalist, producer, and writer Ashley Kahn will examine the music and legacy of genre-defying trumpeter and bandleader Miles Davis this fall at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. This groundbreaking course, which will be open to a select number of undergraduates, will integrate a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz, rock, hip hop, electronic, dance, and neo-soul, to analyze Davis’s pioneering influence on more than six decades of music.
