Some of the best blues in America today isn't coming out of Chicago or the Deep South -- it's coming from New York City's Times Square where the B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars featuring the Harlem Blues Project jam weekly at Lucille's with special guests. Several soulful and dynamic veteran vocalist-musicians make up the Harlem Blues Project: Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack and Barry Harrison. Singer and bassist Jerry Dugger is a member of the New York Blues Hall of Fame, who's shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and more. Guitarist Junior Mack has played with greats like the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts and Honeyboy Edwards and drummer Barry Harrison, a long-time band member for Johnny Copeland and Shemekia Copeland, rounds out one of the hottest blues outfits ever assembled. They're joined by a rotating cast of the finest musicians in New York City and beyond. Learn More

This concert was fabulous as only Ottmar Liebert and his group can be. The size of the space was perfect and the acoustics were the best. I did not appreciate the very close quarters of the B.B King venue for eating dinner and the service was sloppy. We got food but no silverware or dinner napkins. It was also very expensive with only 4 shrimp on the $14.00 appetizer. But we ordered oysters also and they were $16.00 for 6 and were excellent. I would have to think twice about going there again though as the overall experience at the venue was not great.
Quotes & Highlights
Hear Ottmar Leibert’s music at his website.
Ottmar Liebert harnesses the emotional fire and mournful tonalities of traditional Flamenco music, updates it with the subtle rhythms of jazz and makes it widely accessible with the melodic song structures of pop. The acoustic guitarist summed it up with the apt comment that Nouveau Flamenco is to the traditional variety what bossa nova is to samba. But even the cleverest formulas are worthless without the animating spark of genius, a quality for which there is no formula, only serendipity.
