BANGKOK — Bangkok jazz musicians are welcome to bring their weapons of choice to join or just enjoy a jam session to commemorate American trumpeter Miles Davis 25 years after he died.

Jazz folks will gather at a dive bar down in the Sathorn area on Wednesday for Miles Davis Throwback, to lay down some noise along with Miles Davis’ tracks in addition to the jazz jam session.

Admission is free. The event starts at 8pm on Wednesday at I Hate Pigeons. The new bar is on Soi Sribumphen, near Soi Sathorn 1. It can be reached by foot or motorbike from MRT Lumphini.

Davis is remembered as a top trumpeter, composer and bandleader. He’s regarded as one of the most influential musician in history. The nine-time Grammy winner died at 65 in 1991.
