All Ages, Blues, Folk, & Country

Amos Lee

When: Tue., Sept. 9, 8 p.m. 2008

Not unlike his peer Norah Jones, Amos Lee crafts a similar kind of Starbucks-friendly fare, leaning more toward rhythm-and-blues versus Jones' jazz and country base. (Of course, having Jones ex-paramour/current bassist Lee Alexander produce Lee's self-titled 2005 debut only furthered the comparisons.) For his recent outing, Last Days at the Lodge, the Philadelphia native tapped über-knob-twirler Don Was in addition to recruiting a number of studio vets to help with the heavy lifting, including Spooner Oldham, Doyle Bramhall Jr., Greg Liesz, and Wallflower Rami Jaffee. With this crew in tow, Lee further flexes Bill Withers, Terry Callier, and Philly International influences that are sure to be on display at the Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco) on Tuesday, Sept. 9. 8 p.m., $27.50.
