- Front Premier
at City Winery Atlanta
Once upon a time R&B was known for great live performances marked by passion, spontaneity and even transcendence through the great soul revues at such storied venues as The Apollo Theater, The Howard Theater and The Uptown. The musicians playing behind the singers were often the finest players from the realms of R&B jazz and gospel, who delivered intricate arrangements, electrifying solos and undeniable groove. In recent times, such performances have been rare but the hunger for that special sort of musical experience is still there and maybe it just takes someone with great determination and vision to bring it back. Jeff Bradshaw, a key player in Philadelphia’s influential neo-soul scene is the man with such vision. He dreamed: why not bring the crème-de-la-crème of singers and players to The City Winery Atlanta for a genre-crossing one-night-only musical event that would replicate the excitement of the classic R&B revues for this generation of fans? The respect accorded Jeff Bradshaw by his peers is shown by the impressive list of artists who wanted to be a part of the concert: Chart Topping Neo-Soul artist Glenn Lewis, ATL's very own and Soul Music songstress Algebra Blessett, and many other surprise artist and musicians during this special evening.
