On Thurs. 7/25/13 at 8pm and 10pm its going to be
& Erica Falls/Vocalist
I love to be able to use superlatives and without reservation I can tell you that this is going to be a double dose of wonderful.
Herlin Riley makes a drum set talk. His rhythmic sense is amazing as he seems to effortlessy intertwine down beats, back beats, rolls, riffs, the brightness of cymbals and even African sequences in a way that is seamless. Listening to him is an education in what is possible on a drumset. And he has so much fun doing it that he is infectious and extremely engaging and entertaining, and Herlin Riley always rolls with top shelf musicians. (Donald Ramsey already told me he’s on bass that night… another rhythm master.)
Boo and I planned to go even before we found out that he was going to have Erica Falls as featured vocalist, Erica is a singer we will show up for when she is the only attraction. If you have never heard this woman perform you will be blown away and if you have, you know what I’m talking about. Serious about her art with the gift of voice and versatile moving all around R&B, Jazz, Blues and Neo-Soul. Let me put it this way when Erica leaves it all on the stage she is the kind of singer no one would want to follow, and she always leaves it all on stage.
Sorry if you can’t make it… poor thing!
