Anderson.Paak and The Free Nationals brought the “Best Teef in the Game” to Jacob's Pavilion in Cleveland last night. With a lineup that boasted Grammy-nominated bassist, Thundercat and rapper Earl Sweatshirt; musically there was something for everybody.
The Rebel, The Soul & The Saint Tour took place last night at the Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield, OH. When the tour was first announced back in the Summer, some raised an eyebrow at the unusual lineup of gospel megastar Kirk Franklin, R&B and Jazz songstress Ledisi, R&B musician PJ Morton and/or pop-soul singer MAJOR. The show was amazing and although combining multi-genres on one bill could be deemed risky by those not knowing that prior to the 1900s gospel music had influenced jazz and blues and after the 1900s jazz and blues were influencing gospel music.
With the combination set forth on this bill by these amazing musicians, it worked perfectly.
