Time, No Changes: Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet

Time, No Changes: Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet

In production – Available for coproduction or prebuy

In 1962, Miles Davis was one of the major forces in music worldwide, and his artistic influence extended far beyond jazz. In 1964, he found four dynamic and up-and-coming musicians: Wayne Shorter on saxophone, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums. Subsequently, all four went on to become musical icons.

This group of younger musicians, orbiting one of the greatest artists of all time, pushed the boundaries of improvised music, and the group came to be known as Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet. Fifty years later, their experimental approach to music is unmatched and may be the most influential force in jazz today.

The documentary focuses on the Quintet’s musical landmarks and unfolds the inspired magic that made it all happen. It is a deep dive into the recordings, live performances, band dynamic, and how it all came to an end in 1968. The film features three of the surviving members — Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Ron Carter — along with other musicians the band has influenced.

This is the story of Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet.
