James Hunter Six with special guest, Hello Dollface
A rhythm and blues singer of uncommon vitality and chops, James Hunter’s buoyant spirit and magnetic stage charisma demolishes labels like “throwback” and “retro.” As the newest family member of the famed Daptone Records (America’s premier soul imprint), The James Hunter Six remain one of the hottest soul acts in the world.
It’s been 10 years since the Englishman James Hunter burst onto the scene with his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk, topping the Billboard Blues chart, earning a Grammy-nomination, and attracting universal acclaim from critics and his fans – including Van Morrison, Sharon Jones, and Allen Toussaint. This year, Hunter is touring in promotion of his latest album, Hold On! featuring the driving stompers, bubbling rumbas, and the rawness and feeling to which Daptone fans have become accustomed. The music cuts straight to the soul of the man who James Hunter fans have come to love.

John Scofield's "Country For Old Men"
2017 will draw John Scofield into yet another conceptual territory, bringing his lifelong love of American Country music out of his toolbox to share with his jazz audiences in his “Country For Old Men” project, Scofield approaches classic country melodies, performing with several of his closest musical associates from the Jazz community – Steve Swallow, Bill Stewart and Larry Goldings. In Scofield’s words, “We’re going to turn ‘outlaw’ country tunes into Jazz vehicles. Rather than go to Nashville and record with ‘real’ country players in a country style, I’m joining forces with my jazz cronies to play the songs with our jazz approach. We improvise while keeping the integrity, character and twang of this wonderful American music. I’ve always loved Country music and am super excited to put my treatment of them into play.” Scofield and company will sculpt jazz renditions of classic tunes by George Jones, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Patti Page and even Shania Twain to name a few!
The Metropolitan Opera - Live in HD - Romeo et Juliette (Gounod)
When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. The production, by director Bartlett Sher, has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.
