The Midnight Hour, aka Adrian Younge (keyboards) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (bass) perform at The Soda Bar on November 17. Muhammad is perhaps best known for his work with hip hop icons A Tribe Called Quest, but on the Midnight Hour’s self titled debut album he mines for soul/jazz/hip hop/funk and comes up with gold in every track. It’s a seamless, intoxicating blend, but jazz aficionados in particular may be drawn to songs like “Do It Together,” while anyone who is partial to sweet string laden soul will want to hear “Questions.” Backed by a tight rhythm section and a full orchestra, this is a must for fans of modern soul and the afore mentioned genres, but anyone who has ever enjoyed seventies era music from labels such as Blue Note, Motown and Stax will also love every second of this show .
