Modern Love presents:
On Saturday October 16th, a collection of London’s finest musicians will pay tribute to one of the true legends of soul, Curtis Mayfield.
Curtis has been responsible for some of soul music’s greatest tunes. From ‘Move on Up’, to ‘Pusherman’ and ‘Superfly’, there is no doubt as to Mayfield’s status as one of the best-loved artists in soul music history. His music has been sampled by artists the world over, and nowhere is his influence more keenly felt than in the world of contemporary Hip Hop, with both Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar sampling Curtis’s tracks.
His repertoire has been re-scored and will be performed live by an orchestra. Expect to hear all of your favourite Curtis Mayfield tunes against the backdrop of the iconic Jazz Cafe.
