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
Reviews & Ratings
Pianist Keiko Matsui is an icon of contemporary jazz. With over 1.2 million units sold in the U.S. alone and sold-out appearances at concert halls across the world, she is one of the most recognized artists in the genre. Her elegant piano melodies and gentle jazz grooves have enormous appeal and never disappoint her loyal fan base, which she has cultivated with over 20 albums and hundreds of stunning live shows.
Counting artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Frederic Chopin, Maurice Jarre, and Chick Corea among her influences, Matsui released her first album, A Drop of Water_, in the US in 1987. Her albums Sapphire_ (1995), _Dream Walk , and Deep Blue_ (2001) all broke into the Top 10 on _Billboard’_s weekly Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, and she was named _Billboard_’s No. 3 Top Contemporary Jazz Artist for 1997. Her releases after the turn of the millennium, including _The Ring _(2002) and _Wildflower _(2004), revealed a broadening of her stylistic scope as they dabbled in world and classical music.
In addition to being a world-renowned musician, Matsui is also an active humanitarian, supporting the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization, the National Marrow Foundation, the United Nations World Food Programme, and efforts to provide relief to Japan after the recent earthquake and tsunami. After a brief hiatus from recording at the end of the last decade, she released her latest album, _The Road, _early in 2011.
