Adrian Younge, soundtrack artist/producer for Marvel’s Luke Cage, has teamed with Ali Shaheed Muhammad again, this time in a project called The Midnight Hour. I was excited to see that TMH is coming to Club Cafe in November; see the Concert Calendar at soulshowmike.org. Separately, I scheduled a Younge phone interview for next week, so the timing is perfect.
The Baylor Project has been added to the Concert Calendar. This is a Kente production and, as I told Gail and Mensah at Backstage Bar last night, they never ever bring a disappointing show to Pittsburgh. Speaking of Backstage Bar, Tony Campbell was back after a multi-year hiatus, and he delivered all of that pent-up energy. My biggest regret was having to leave early for Maxwell at Heinz Hall.
Maxwell totally delivered, except the sound was disappointing. A lead singer’s voice should ALWAYS float above, but the mix just wasn’t right.
New Brian Edwards music is scheduled for The Soul Show on 10/6 – listen to the Three Rivers @Three segment, 3:00pm Eastern.
Mobile Soul, my new video interview series on soulshowmike.org, will launch soon. The concept is simple: drive around with local artists, taking in the pretty city bridges and other sites as we talk about their music, projects, etc.
