This December, as a part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 30th anniversary, Steve Miller will lead an exploration of the blues entitled “Blues Triangle: Memphis, Texas, Chicago.”
The show will be a deep-dive into the genre, looking back on its origins in all three cities with Miller at the helm, mining his own musical journey for inspiration. In addition to his work with the Steve Miller Band, the singer-songwriter has performed with blues legends like Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy and Howlin’ Wolf. As a child, he received guitar lessons from his godfather Les Paul as well as T Bone Walker.
Guitarist Charlie Musselwhite, harmonica expert Jimmie Vaughan, B3 organist Mike Flanigin, pianist Shelly Berg and many more will join Miller at the event to create a full blues ensemble.
“Blues Triangle: Memphis, Texas, Chicago” will take place on December 1 and 2, at the Rose Theater in New York City. Tickets are available on jazz.org.
