Lucky Peterson returns to Acapela with a Tribute to Jimmy Smith
Following his amazing sell out concert in August 2017, we are delighted to announce that Lucky is to return to Acapela with a brand new show
Lucky Peterson concentrates for this concert on the Hammond B-3 organ, his favorite instrument whose warm tone refers to the songs of gospel and the hymns of soul music.
To pay tribute to his mentor Jimmy Smith, he surrounded himself with virtuoso partners among whom stands the prodigy guitarist Kelyn Crapp. Throughout his new album, Lucky Peterson is the repository of a long musical history rooted in the blues but very open; we find the pulsation of jazz, the groove of rhythm’n’blues and the energy of rock’n’roll. After the remarkable The Son of a Bluesman and Live in Marciac, the new album of the American bluesman Lucky Peterson at Jazz Village is already an important and indispensable disc in his lush discography.
The reason for this is twofold. First of all, Lucky Peterson plays exclusively with the Hammond B-3 organ and favors instrumental pieces, and then proposes a particularly compact instrumentation (a trio orgueguitare-drums, sometimes with the addition of a trumpet or a saxophone) through a repertoire clearly oriented towards jazz, in tribute to the great organist Jimmy Smith, with classics from his repertoire (The Sermon, The Champ), and many other surprises …
Don’t miss this very special concert… if you missed his last one, where were you – those who were there are still talking about it! The concert was one of the highlights of the Acapela music calendar in 2017 and this new concert will be very special as well!.
