New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Miles Electric Band just wrapped their debut performance at Playboy Jazz Festival's 40th Anniversary event. The progressive All-Star ensemble, featuring Miles Davis alumni, revises the framework for modern jazz improvisation. The collective revisits repertoire from Davis' electric period and represents two generations of master musicians with a rotating line-up. All in paying homage to The Chief. The LA Times included the band in its Playboy Jazz Fest advance "5 Acts Not To Miss."
A special tribute to festival founder/jazz music supporter Hugh Hefner took place immediately following Miles Electric Band, led by Cooper Hefner.

Comments Wilburn, Jr.: "What a beautiful day and honor to play the Playboy Jazz Fest and to have my hero, Herbie Hancock, give me hug before the stage rotated. Also, what a great honor to be chosen by the Hefner family to play underneath the montage paying tribute to Hugh on the 40th Anniversary."
