The New Nine is a tribute to 'The Birth of the Cool' led by Miles Davis, Gil Evans, and Gerry Mulligan in 1949-1950. The ensemble performs all the original arrangements for the jazz nonet, as well as new compositions and arrangements for the unusual instrumentation. Formed in 2019 upon the 70th anniversary of the original recording dates, the New Nine premiered at the Bluewhale in downtown Los Angeles. The group is co-led by Andres Trujillo and Pat Sheng.
