The Curtom Orchestra play Curtis Mayfield

A full band celebration of the music and legacy of the Chicago Soul Legend featuring members of Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies, & Incognito.

It is now 20 years since the passing of Chicago Soul Singer-Songwriter & Producer Curtis Mayfield. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Curtis Mayfield commenced his musical career as part of a gospel choir. After meeting Jerry Butler he formed The Impressionsin 1956. The Impressions recorded many classics including “We’re a Winner”, “I’m So Proud”, “It’s All Right”, “For Your Precious Love” and the politically-charged “People Get Ready“.

Curtis Mayfield started his solo career in 1970 releasing the “Curtis” album which featured “Move On Up“, one of his most enduring songs. The album was the first release on his Curtom Records label. Other artists signed to the label included Leroy Hutson, Linda Clifford, Mavis Staples, Baby Huey and the Babysitters and more. His 1972 Blaxploitation film soundtrack “Superfly” was voted #72 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s greatest albums of all time.

The Curtom Orchestra will be performing all of the classics from throughout the career of Curtis Mayfield tonight.
