Joe McBride Plays The Music of Brother Ray: A Tribute to Ray Charles

Apr 21 , 2017 · Harvey Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture

Prices begin at $15

with Special Guest Kenny Blake

Presented by: Blumenthal Performing Arts

Join us for the ultimate tribute to blues legend Ray Charles featuring jazz greats Joe McBride and Kenny Blake! Singer/pianist Joe McBride, an innovator since his first recordings in the early ‘90s, is known for making the lines between jazz, R&B, soul, funk, pop, hip-hop and countless other styles become indistinguishable. Saxophonist Kenny Blake's sound is perfectly described as “soul hybrid,” a combination of traditional jazz with modern rhythm and blues. His R&B-tinged solos have delighted fans around the world for decades.

In this concert, McBride and Blake bring their own special styles to Charles's best known songs.
