The Soul of Maxwell

Romantically sweeping and deeply funky, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite defined the neo-soul movement in the late '90s. Maxwell himself will give one helluva concert on Sunday, Aug. 17, at 7:30pm at Route 66 Casino’s Legends Theater (14500 Central SW), performing work from his back catalog as well as recent stuff. After engaging a two-decade-long career arc that careened from classic to confounding, Maxwell released BLACKsummers’night to commercial and critical acclaim in 2009, once again establishing himself as the prime mover in an otherwise unpredictably bifurcating subgenre.

His rich, sometimes ornate take on rhythm and blues has earned Gerald Maxwell Rivera, noted for his physically intense performance style as well as grooved-out melodicism, two Grammy Awards, a dozen Grammy nominations and all kinds of metal-coated records too. Though his latest compositions reflect the maturity that comes from surviving the record industry and the '90s, the work is still highly diggable with sensuous overtones and a crisp, starry finish. All of that groove, past and present, can be yours for the evening. Tickets range in price from 55 to 125 clams. If you go, it will be totally fortunate, dig?
