Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Jon Batiste & the Stay Human Band

When: Thu., Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m. 2014

The artistic director at large of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, Jon Batiste is also a recording artist who earned universal praise for last year's Social Music. The exuberant 26-year-old singer and his group Stay Human mix together several genres of music including funk, hip-hop and rock. With a tuba riff leading the way, the album opener "Let God Lead" sounds a bit like the Dirty Dozen Brass Band but with a spiritual vibe. Other tunes such as "San Spirito" have a more traditional jazz sound to them. Should make for a good high energy show. (Jeff Niesel)
