Featuring Bob James, David Sanborn & Marcus Miller

with guests Billy Kilson & Larry Braggs

A jazz legend, Bob James has a career that has defined the genre and continues to evolve at every turn. David Sanborn is universally known as one of the most iconic saxophonists of the current age. Marcus Miller’s characteristic bass sound can be heard on a limitless catalog of musical hits. Together, these three virtuosos reunite for the first time since the release of Double Vision, the 80's collaboration between James and Sanborn that dominated the airwaves, sold over one million copies, and earned a GRAMMY Award. Featuring the renowned track “Maputo,” written by Marcus Miller, and the classic standard “Since I Fell For You” with guest vocalist Al Jarreau, Double Vision is considered by many as one of the most successful albums in the jazz genre.

Adding in the talents of featured guests Billy Kilson (drums) and Larry Braggs (guest vocals), the Double Vision Revisited band is a thrilling return to the classic sound of the famous album. The resulting program presents tunes capable of both amazing new listeners and enthralling long-term fans, showing audiences the world over the true magic of a good groove.

Impossible Tour

“Black Violin upends cultural and musical stereotypes… An unexpected blend of classically trained musicianship and hip-hop beats and inventiveness.” The Miami Herald

A one-of-a-kind mash-up of classical, hip hop, rock and R&B with a message, the classically-trained string duo Black Violin – Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) – fuses the sounds of today with classical virtuosity. Or, in the words of Black Violin, “It’s a party, man.” Adding DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes to the lineup, the group has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aretha Franklin and Tom Petty. They’re bringing their chart-topping, genre-bending, stereotype-busting sound on the Impossible Tour, proving that there are no limits to what we can achieve, regardless of circumstance.

“An ebullient mix of Afro-Cuban jazz, seventies funk and revamped standards… [with a] high-energy, horn-heavy sound.” Rolling Stone

With his “virtuoso chops and capacious personality” (The Boston Globe), Jon Batiste “whips up excitement” (The Wall Street Journal) as the leader of the rip-roaring jazz-roots collective Stay Human, igniting the music world – and your TV – as Late Night with Stephen Colbert’s house band. The Juilliard-trained jazz and R&B multiinstrumentalist has forged his own artistic path, from his particular brand of New Orleans-infused funk and pop to his eloquent solo album Hollywood Africans. Following his life-affirming Santa Barbara debut last season Batiste is back with the full force of his band, pounding the keys in a high-octane night of pure musical joy.
