Jazz At Lincoln Center: Steve Miller To Perform Special Show
Steve Miller, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, will make his long-awaited return to Jazz at Lincoln Center.
He will return to the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center on November 11th and 12th to play in Steve Miller on Steve Miller: A Blues and Rock and Roll Journey.
Miller's long-running series honours his inspirations while also teaching people about American blues history.
As a member of Jazz at Lincoln Center's Board of Directors, he has created and led performances on the bridge from blues to jazz in T-Bone Walker's work
Now he'll turn the camera back on himself to investigate the effect his blues idols had on his own music, including popular songs like "The Joker," "Take The Money and Run,"
It will be the first time he is accompanied by Steve Miller Band members Kenny Lee Lewis on bass, Joseph Wooten on keyboards, and Jacob Petersen on guitar.
Miller was up with jazz-loving parents and subsequently expanded his blues expertise with the aid of family friend T- Bone Walker.
He worked with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Junior Wells, James Cotton, and Paul Butterfield after coming to Chicago.
Miller's inspirations helped create his psychedelic blues rock style as a stalwart of the San Francisco music scene in the late '60s.
