Seasonal Special Happenings

Soul Provider

When: Fri., Aug. 16, 7:30 & 10 p.m. 2013

The promoters behind the Extract(s), a concert series that takes place at Take 5 Rhythm & Jazz Tapas Lounge, the new jazz club located in the Warehouse District, present a special performance tonight from Maysa, the front woman of the British acid jazz group Incognito. Back in the ‘90s, these guys were hot stuff and their single “Water to Drink” was one of the standout tracks on the 1994 AIDS benefit album Red Hot + Rio. Maysa has just issued Blue Velvet Soul, an album of more traditional jazz/R&B than anything by Incognito. Album opener “Beautiful Dreamer” is a smooth jazz tune about falling in love, and “Sophisticated Lover” is a bit funkier as she adopts a husky voice and whispers, “baby, you got wicked skills.” It’s a solid album that should translate well in the club’s intimate setting. Local R&B/soul singer Stephen Fowler opens; Maysa is slated to play at 7:30 and 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 ADV, $25 DOS. (Jeff Niesel)
