Trumpeter James Suggs performed a tribute to Miles Davis at The Palladium at St. Petersburg College last night. With Jeremy Carter on sax; John O’Leary, piano; Brandon Robertson, bass; and Mark Feinman, drums. Saxophonist Austin Vickrey sat in for a couple of tunes. They played a lot of classic Davis songs from the 1950’s and 60’s. Suggs said he enjoys performing at these kind of venues because, “people come to listen.” The sold-out crowd returned the compliment with a standing ovation at the end. A memorable night. WUSF’s Michael Cornette MC’d.
