~ Bobby Caldwell - Double CD - THE TIME HAS COME: The Ultimate Anthology (release date Nov. 22, 2019) ~

~ Number 9 on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Chart ~

~ Bobby Caldwell will be bringing autographed copies of his new release for this run of shows. This will be the first time the new double CD with 31 tracks is available with Bobby's autograph.~

Born in Manhattan and raised in Miami, Bobby Caldwell came from a show business family. His mother and father both sang and were the hosts of one of the first musical variety programs on television, Suppertime. Bobby grew up listening to show tunes, the music of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, as well as The Beatles. These early influences are prevalent in Bobby's singing and songwriting.

Bobby chose a career in music at the tender age of 17. Since then, he has toured the USA and the globe for 50 years, earning gold and platinum records both domestically and internationally. Overseas, he regularly sells out shows in Japan and throughout Asia, where he enjoys a feverish popularity. At home, he has been featured on The CBS Second Cup Café, The Tonight Show starring Jay Leno, BET Jazz Central, and has made numerous national and local network appearances.

As a singer, he has a successful career with numerous solo releases, which have earned accolades far and wide. His songwriting skills have earned hits not only for himself, but also for well-known artists like Chicago, Boz Scaggs, Neil Diamond, and Al Jarreau. Bobby’s songs have also been featured in countless motion pictures, and he has even made film and stage appearances himself.

In addition to all the songs, shows, and performances, samples and re-recordings of Bobby’s music have also made a significant impact. His timeless classic, "What You Won't Do For Love," has been recorded and sampled by more than 100 artists, and samples and covers of his songs have contributed to over 40 million in sales. Artists as diverse as Tupac Shakur, Michael Bolton, Roberta Flack, Go West, Boys II Men, Vanessa Williams, and Notorious B.I.G. have all paid tribute to Mr. Caldwell, and a sample of Bobby's song "Open Your Eyes" appeared in the Grammy nominated platinum rap hit "The Light" by Common.

The man is unrelenting. He has devoted his entire life to song writing, recording, performing, and making people happy most of all. In 2015 he released his 16th studio album, Cool Uncle, to rave reviews. In his live performances, Bobby draws from his vast repertoire of rousing R&B, intimate smooth jazz stylings, and towering big band songs. His ability to entertain at any venue is still going as strong as ever and is an enjoyable show for fans of any age.

Emmet Cohen Trio

Thu, May 30 - Sun, Jun 2

"When Cohen is in full flight, with Poole slamming the kit around the room behind him, he reminds me of Ahmad Jamal: not the genteel Jamal you hear on record, but the wall-banging, holy-shit Jamal I saw in concert a few years ago, who rolled across the keyboard like a thunderstorm.” — Phil Freeman, STEREOGUM
