Lean on Me: Jose James Celebrates Bill Withers
March 17, 2018 @ 9:15 pm - 10:30 pm UTC-6
Celebrating the eightieth birth year of the legendary R&B singer songwriter, Blue Note recording artist José James presents “Lean On Me: José James celebrates Bill Withers.” Vetted personally by Mr. Withers himself, the show is an exploration of the deep musical catalogue that touched millions of hearts and united communities worldwide. James brings both a deep musical appreciation and a contemporary approach to songs such as “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Hope She’ll Be Happier,” and “Just the Two of Us.”
Fittingly, James assembled an all-star cast of musicians to work with on the project: Nate Smith on drums, Ben Williams on bass, Sullivan Fortner on keys and Brad Allen Williams on guitar. “The first time I played with these guys I knew that we had something special. This is one of the funkiest most soulful bands that you’ll ever hear.”
Performing at The Cooking School of Asepn. Doors open at 5:45 pm for the early show and 8:45 – 9 pm for the late show. Dinner options available for the 7 pm show.
Join Jose James for his pre-performance Listen Up! talk on March 16th at 5:30 pm sharp! Included in ticket price.
