Erudite multi-hyphenate songwriter, musician, bandleader and producer Lance Ferguson (The Bamboos, Lanu) opens up on his deep emotional connection with the most inconic album in jazz history - Miles Davis ‘Kind of Blue’.
Lance reveals how the album is tied into the complex relationship with his father, how the songs from the record have woven into key moments of his life, the contributions of other jazz legends to the record, why Kind of Blue should replace the Holy Bible and how he tried to carry the spirit of the record through his own collaborations with Tim Rogers and Megan Washington and his jazz project 'Menagerie’.
