Band on the Wall presents the ‘First Daughter of Soul’ Lalah Hathaway, daughter of the late, great Donny Hathaway.
“Her notes were perfectly placed and rhythmic, like Ella Fitgerald scatting Lemondrop over an Erykah Badu tune. The audience cheered every long high note, and whooped at every tricky phrase.” London Jazz
Proof of Hathaway’s musical prowess is evident in her work, operating as performer, musician, writer and producer. Revered by some of the greatest musicians of the last century, a myriad of collaborations and international performances signpost Hathaway’s 25-year success. A true bridge between masters of the Jazz and Soul traditions and new generations of Popular Music innovators, Lalah Hathaway has performed with greats such as Stevie Wonder, Anita Baker, Prince, Mary J. Blige, Metropole Orkest, Esperanza Spalding, David Foster, Snoop Dogg, Natalie Cole, Robert Glasper Experiment, Terri Lyne Carrington, Marcus Miller, Dianne Reeves, Dizzy Gillespie, David Sanborn, Rachelle Ferrell, Take 6, The Winans, Me’Shell NdegeOcello, Kirk Whalum, Donald Lawrence, Snarky Puppy, Christian McBride and many more.
Hathaway’s six studio albums chronicles an emotive journey through R&B, jazz, and soul. The inflections of blues, funk, gospel, classical, country, rock and folk cited in her work, is a reflection of this virtuoso’s versatility. With Grammy® wins for Best R&B and Best Traditional R&B Performances in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The Grammy-winning performance of Hathaway’s 1991 single ‘Something’, recreated with jazz collective Snarky Puppy, affirms Hathaway’s timeless relevance and documents the vast breadth of her vocal capabilities, magnified, especially, by her ability to sing three notes at one time (a chord) with her lone voice.
This is a rare opportunity to see this golden voice live and up close. Advance booking highly recommended.
