"Nardis" by Jazz Professors
An audio recording of "Nardis," composed by Miles Davis (1926-1991) and performed by The Jazz Professors live on-air on WUCF-FM on December 10, 2007. The Jazz Professors are a sextet of professors from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, Florida, who play professionally and have released two albums with Flying Horse Records, a professional jazz record label operated by the university. They have recorded and toured with a number of prominent guest musicians. "Nardis" was written by Davis in 1958, during his modal period. In modal jazz, musical modes are used as a harmonic framework, rather than chord progressions. The song is often associated with Bill Evans (1929-1980), who recorded several versions.
