About the Artist(s)
Vancouver’s Electric Miles Band has been together in one form or another for literally decades and it shows. From Bill Clark’s Jazzoids band in the early 80’s (which included Electric Miles members Ron Samworth and Bill Runge), through Andre LaChance’s Backseat Betty band in the 90’s, to Ron Samworths’ Electric Miles Band, these musicians have been exploring the electric music of Miles Davis together for 40 years. With a deep relationship and respect for the repertoire of Bitches Brew, In a Silent Way, On the Corner, Jack Johnson, Live Evil and more, these musicians are in the end are all fearless improvisors and allow the repertoire to take them wherever it leads in the moment. This is one of Vancouver’s most popular progressive Jazz units for good reason as they bring the relentless groove, spontaneous interaction of the music of Electric Miles to every performance.
