Art of Cool is proud to announce the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble as another headliner for the Art of Cool Festival (April 25-26, 2014). On Saturday April 26, 2014 Miguel will direct an 11-piece orchestra in a tribute concert to honor North Carolina jazz and soul legends including Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Nina Simone and Roberta Flack. There will be surprise international jazz/soul recording artists that will join the ensemble. It is going to be one very special night.
Atwood-Ferguson is best known for the historic ‘Suite for Ma Dukes’ concert in Los Angeles leading over 60 musicians, whom he chose and contracted, in tribute to the transcendent modern hip-hop producer J Dilla back in 2009.
