NEW CD IS MY ROAD

Before touring with his own band, Bob spent 7 years in Muddy Waters' band, playing on Grammy-winning albums, participating in star-studded shows and played in Martin Scorsese's classic film, "The Last Waltz."

"MY ROAD reveals who I am today, musically and very personally. Each song takes a surprising turn from the others and my previous music. This breakthrough for me is informed by fifty years on bandstands, my Blues music heritage and credentials, and the drive to survive and thrive in today’s pressurized world. MY ROAD is my ride through modern challenges, the ironies and lessons of aging, achieving true love, mourning, my band’s distinctive signature sound, a childhood epiphany, my seven years in Muddy Waters’ band, and exploring the darkest sides of life with friends who have been there.”

STANLEY JORDAN

Friday
March 25
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


Stanley Jordan has received four Grammy nominations. His most recent album "Friends" was nominated for an NAACP Image Award. Los Angeles Times jazz critic Leonard Feather wrote, "Genius is a word often tossed around in musical circles, but it has been rightfully applied to Stanley Jordan."

In a career that took flight in 1985 with commercial and critical acclaim, guitar virtuoso Stanley Jordan has consistently displayed a chameleonic musical persona of openness, imagination, versatility and maverick daring. Be it bold reinventions of classical masterpieces or soulful explorations through pop-rock hits, to blazing straight ahead jazz forays and ultramodern improvisational works—solo or with a group—Jordan can always be counted on to take listeners on breathless journeys into the unexpected.

"... but Jordan, whose jazz roots are firm, brought an improvisatory perception to everything he played, transforming tunes via rhapsodic variations, fragmenting, reconstructing, playing melodic variations--the entire panoply of jazz soloing enhanced by the broad sweep of his instrumental style." - Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

You just know from that point, you are at the right party. Pass me a groove and let me settle back for this ride. - Ronald Jackson/thesmoothjazzride.com

RUBY AMANFU

Thursday
March 31
Show: $25
Dinner and Show: $65
Show time: 8pm


NEW RECORDING IS STANDING STILL

Ruby Amanfu was born in Ghana, and her tight-knit family moved to Nashville
when Ruby was just three. Ruby soaked up the sounds of Music City, and it
wasn’t long before the town took notice of her incredible gift. Ruby's new release, Standing Still centers around Ruby’s ethereal and versatile voice. Standing Still consists mainly of deep cuts by an eclectic array of songwriters and artists, songs that span a century of music history, from Woody Guthrie to Kanye West. Standing Still includes Ruby’s staggering take on Irma Thomas’s 1964 soul gem, “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is (Will Understand)”, British cult hero Richard Hawley’s “As the Dawn Breaks” and Bob Dylan’s heart wrenching “Not Dark Yet”. Patrick Carney of the Black Keys dropped by the log cabin on Day 3 and produced “Shadow on the Wall”, a song written by folk-pop songstress Brandi.

“Amanfu has stepped back into the spotlight, and she’s magnetic.”
– NPR First Listen
