Almaz make their only New York City appearance on Friday, July 30 at Terminal 5 as a part of their Summer US tour promoting their latest project, Everybody Loves The Sunshine. While singer, Seu Jorge, is well known for throwing an amazing show, this new collaboration of musical masters revisiting songs famous within the Brazilian diaspora (Tim Maia, Jorge Ben) meshed with classic American (Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson) and European (Kraftwerk, Cane and Abel) soul songs, with a bit of psychedelic samba to top it off, promises to be a glorious foot stomping orgy. If you haven’t already, this is the time to get your tickets before they run out.
Earlier this year, on April 4th, 2009, Numero Group mounted the first Eccentric Soul Revue, packing Chicago’s Park West Theater with soul-hungry acolytes, satisfying them and then some with the real thing; the triple-header of R&B: the soul revue.
If you live in New York, Numero Group, with the help of The Bowery Presents, is bringing the soul revue to the City, for one night only, at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg this Friday. Taking cues from Stax’s European tour in 1967, Numero’s Eccentric Soul Revue will feature one tight backing band — JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound — with a revolving cast of singers to include Syl Johnson, The Notations, Renaldo Domino and Missy Dee.. An interactive slideshow will be projected behind the artists, showcasing photos and ephemera from Chicago’s forgotten soul history.
Tickets are still available via The Bowery Presents. If you purchased tickets to the just-canceled Thursday, November 12th show at Grand Ballroom already, they will be honored at Friday’s date.
