Rainbow Sign
Brian Blade, Bill Frisell, Jason Moran, and Thomas Morgan Play the Music of Ron Miles
In March of 2022, the Music Department lost our dear colleague Ron Miles. In his more than 30 years of teaching at MSU Denver, Ron impacted countless lives and inspired so many students to believe in themselves and to enjoy the process of learning and developing as artists and scholars.
Join us for this special celebration of his life and his music, performed by his bandmates – drummer Brian Blade, guitarist Bill Frisell, pianist Jason Moran, and bassist Thomas Morgan.
Miles introduced the all-star quintet with his widely hailed 2017 release I Am a Man, which built on his trio with Frisell and Blade featured on 2012’s Quiver and 2014’s Circuit Rider. With Moran and Morgan on board Miles’ compressed lyricism continued to unfurl on the 2020 quintet album Rainbow Sign, his debut for the iconic Blue Note label. In adopting the name with its Biblical allusion the Rainbow Sign quartet expands a singular musical legacy. A gentle soul with a steel trap mind, a generous mentor and educator with a deep well of wisdom, Miles created a sumptuously melodic body of music that this band continues to illuminate.
