Blues in the Night, at 92Y; Mike LeDonne, Organ; Bill Charlap and Lafayette Harris, Pianos

Thursday July 26, 2018, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The blues is at the very center of American popular culture.

The haunting beauty of this great African-American art form informs countless beloved standards: “He’s Gone Again,” “Send Me Someone to Love,” “Since I Fell for You” and so many more. Experience the force of the blues with legendary songstress Melba Joyce and tenor sax master Houston Person, alongside organist Mike LeDonne, trumpeter Eddie Allen, guitarist Rodney Jones and more. Listen with fresh ears to this essential element of all American song — and get ready for a night that’ll send off Jazz in July on a beautiful blue note.
