Mavis Staples in concertTucson Jazz Festival
January 19 @ 7:00 pm
Backed by her longtime touring band, Staples breathes extraordinary life into multi-GRAMMY Award-winner Ben Harper’s compositions on the record, delivering roof-raising performances with both a youthful vigor and a commanding maturity. The arrangements here are spare but weighty, matched by Harper’s suitably lean and thoughtful production, and Staples seizes the opportunity to showcase her remarkable and continued evolution as an artist, one still growing and exploring more than half a century into her storied career.
