Coming June 27, 2016
Di-tone Records presents the new recording
and a one-time only concert at the legendary Manhattan jazz club, Birdland.
Capathia Jenkins (Newsies, Caroline or Change, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me) and Alton Fitzgerald White (The Color Purple, Ragtime, The Lion King) come to Birdland to celebrate the Di-tone Records™ release of their recording of Dream Suite: Songs in Jazz and Blues, Louis' acclaimed song cycle on poems by Langston Hughes.
(“Exuberant!'' Bloomberg News.…"Poems of reflection, remembrance and inspiration. If you have not heard this music, the passion and intelligence…was gripping.” Cabaret Scenes.)
Jenkins and White will be accompanied at Birdland by Broadway conductor/pianist Kimberly Grigsby (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Spring Awakening). Louis will also be on hand to offer a brief sneak preview of songs from his upcoming second solo album, DUST TO DUST BLUES.
The pre-release sale of the new recording will be available at Louis' Store on June 15.
Tickets for the June 27th Birdland concert are on sale now.
