June 24 on ASPiRE TV: Miles Davis tribute featuring DJ Moonbaby with Robert Glasper and Terrace Martin

AJ Miles Davis

On May 19, 2016, in honor of  jazz legend Miles Davis and his 90th birthday, Grammy-nominated producer/multi-instrumentalist Terrace Martin along with GRAMMY-winning jazz pianist Robert Glasper joined my good friend DJ Moonbaby at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in Los Angeles for a once in a lifetime community event. Glasper, who won his first Grammy with his breakout album, Black Radio, was celebrating his current release, a tribute to and re-imagining of Miles Davis’ music, Everything’s Beautiful. Martin has become well-known for his work with Kendrick Lamar, Quincy Jones, Snoop Dogg, 9th Wonder, and Talib Kweli, among many others.


The free show brought the community together for a night of entertainment, jazz history, and the opportunity to witness some of this generation’s most talented musicians. It was incredible to bring the legend of Miles Davis to such a diverse and youthful crowd. With the release of the feature film, Miles Ahead, featuring Oscar-winner Don Cheadle, the timing is apropos. With a line-up of world class musicians, the packed crowd was wowed they played the music of the groundbreaking genius, Miles Davis. The entire event will be broadcast on the ASPiRE TV NETWORK THIS COMING FRIDAY, JUNE 24TH AT 10 P.M. PST.


Martin and Glasper are not only bringing their love of jazz to the mainstream and new generation, they are merging genres with their collaborations with artists from other genres. Terrace has worked with a wide range of hip-hop and R&B artists, while Glasper has worked with musicians as diverse as Radiohead and Joni Mitchell.

DJ Moonbaby has a weekly radio show on called UnRestricted, every Thursday night from 8-10 p.m. PST, playing the best in soul, hip-hop, gospel, and R&B, but truly throwing in anything she wants, even some trip-hop electronica now and then. She features live music and interviews with an indie artist discovery spotlight along with some of your favorite artists such as three-time Grammy winner Lalah Hathaway, Faith Evans, and more.  Additionally, she serves at the Gospel and TV/Film Music Awards Manager for the Grammy Awards. Aside from that, this busy chica has a gig hosting/curating a music series called Grammy Pro Buzzin’, in which she interviews musicians who are making waves in the current musical ocean as well as the current Grammy nominees and winners.
