Soul, Funk, R&B, & Hip-Hop

The Midnight Hour

When: Sun., Nov. 10, 8 p.m. 2019

One of the strongest components to Netflix’s Luke Cage series was its music. It captured the groove, the jazzy backbeats and the sweeping sophisticated orchestral movements of classic soul. This soundtrack was the handiwork of A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed and composer/songwriter Adrian Younge. The duo started working on a record together, after first collaborating on Souls Of Mischief’s There Is Only Now record in 2013. The opportunity to score Luke Cage came to them before they released their debut LP, but in 2018 when they finally put it out, it proved to be one of the best albums of 2018, hitting a line of innovative, cutting-edge musical exploration while still functioning as an ode to the jazzy-soul pioneers of yesteryear. The duo have a new album scheduled for 2020. You can get a sneak peak with their recently releases single “Harmony.” It’s as smooth and gorgeous as you’d expect.
