Black Movie Music At The Hollywood Bowl
Coming Wed, September 3rd
Marcus Miller and I have been working together since I asked him to score the original HOUSE PARTY back in 1989. From BOOMERANG to the pilot of EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS, we had a lot of success together.
Our latest collaboration is BLACK MOVIE MUSIC, a celebration of black music in the movies from STORMY WEATHER through SHAFT, SUPERFLY, PURPLE RAIN all the way through to HAPPY! The music will feature the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Marcus Miller and an all-star band, and all kinds of guest stars and cool video clips from your favorite movies. Here’s a video I did to give to give you a feel for the event:
This has nothing to do with my concert but here’s recent footage of Marcus Miller in Morocco jamming with Moustapha Baqbou at Festival Gnaoua et Musiques du Monde.
