WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, guitarist Bill Frisell, composer Roy Nathanson, The Charles Mingus Orchestra, record producer and songwriter T Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint. This show follows the release of 'Wise Up Ghost,' the collaborative album from Costello and The Roots, released September 17th on Blue Note Records. The album was produced by longtime Roots associate Steven Mandel along with Costello and ?uestlove. Costello's recent solo dates have become the stuff of legend, with reactions ranging from "Mesmerizing" and "Spellbinding (OC Register) to "Impassioned" and "Breathtaking" (ArizonaRepublic) to "altogether stunning" (San Diego Union Tribune)
