Miles Ahead: A Radio Special - 9 p.m.

Downbeat Magazine calls Miles Ahead “the most anticipated jazz film in decades.” Before you see the movie, let this one-hour radio special shed light on how director Don Cheadle fought to make the film happen. You’ll hear insights from Cheadle, keyboard wizard Robert Glasper, Miles’ son Erin Davis, and nephew Vince Wilburn, Jr. You’ll also hear music from the soundtrack, including work from Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and Glasper.
