Graduate music student is in Miles Davis movie
Theron Brown, graduate of the Jazz Music program and current music performance graduate student, spent some time this summer in Cincinnati, Ohio, doing his best to emulate a young version of jazz great Herbie Hancock for the film "Miles Ahead." Set mostly in the 1970s, the film is about a pivotal time in the career of trumpeter Miles Davis. The film is directed by actor Don Cheadle, who also plays Davis.
Brown has yet to meet Hancock, who is supervising the film's soundtrack. But he may just get his chance when the film opens in 2015.
