Add to Calendar 11-08-2013 11-08-2013 15 Bobby Rush Allen Toussaint / Brian and Eddie Holland / Como Mamas Bobby Rush calls it "folk funk," his blend of rough-hewn vocals, acoustic tunes, and dancefloor-friendly grooves. Hailing from the blues and old-school R&B world, the singer and guitarist leaps in his own eccentric direction. Loved for hits like "Chicken Heads" and honored for his recent, stripped down songs, he and his band push blues into soulful, funky territory. Solo at the piano, New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint can only hint at his long, artful, genre-defying career. From jazz gems to hot-and-heavy funk, from production work with Sir Paul McCartney and Labelle to performances with Elvis Costello and Levon Helm, Toussaint's musical creativity and gifts range far, but always come back to his hometown's blues and jazz, as he channels both revelry and reflection with a virtuosic, light touch on the keys. Often compared to the Gershwin brothers, Eddie and Brian Holland made a major mark on Motown. The brothers forged the soundtrack for a generation, writing hits for the likes of the Four Tops and the Isley Brothers, when not recording and performing themselves. In this intimate set, the songwriters and producers will revisit their legendary body of work, as part of an on-stage conversation with educator and producer Harry Weinger. The Hollands will recount the tales behind the classic songs, and then perform them in pared-down but powerful arrangements. Hailing from a long line of rural Mississippi gospel vocalists -- their grandfather was recorded by folklorist Alan Lomax -- the Como Mamas have been singing together since childhood. Now the inspiring a cappella trio is finally coming to New York, thanks to the enthusiastic support of the Daptone Records crew. Performing favorite hymns sung to heal and encourage, the Como Mamas have rough, praise-filled voices that invoke the full power, beauty, and glory of life. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=136833 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
