About the Band: Myles Twitty
Myles Ellington Twitty is a jazz trumpeter, arranger, and bandleader from Cincinnati, Ohio. He began playing trumpet at 6 years old after being introduced to it by his father who is both a music educator and jazz trombonist. Several years later, he heard Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” which showed him a whole new world of musical possibility, pushing him to become the best trumpeter and Jazz musician he can be. In 2018, he was admitted to the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music and will graduate in Spring 2022. As a senior, Twitty is well on his way to becoming a powerful force in the Jazz scene having performed/studied with some of the most prominent modern Jazz giants including Marcus Printup, Carla Cook, Billy Hart, Mike Wade, Christian McBride, and Marc Cary.
This performance is made possible through support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and by American Rescue Plan funds from the City of Cincinnati, administered through ArtsWave.
