An all-star band celebrates a living legend of disco, soul and boogie

Songwriter, arranger, producer and engineer Patrick Adams has applied a magic touch to more than four decades of music, earning thousands of credits for contributions to disco, boogie, soul and hip-hop releases both genre-defining and criminally underrated. In addition to mentoring Leroy Burgess and his seminal soul group Black Ivory, Adams, a Harlem native, was a key contributor to innumerable disco LPs and hits like Musique’s “In The Bush,” Cloud One’s “Atmosphere Strut,” Phreek’s “Weekend” and Inner Life’s “I’m Caught Up (In A One Night Love Affair).” His agnostic approach to arrangement enabled Adams to jump between genres and generations, pivoting away from the well-earned “Prince of Soft Soul” nickname to work with Eric B. & Rakim on their classic albums Paid in Full and Follow The Leader. This concert at Harlem's Alhambra Ballroom will celebrate the hometown hero's illustrious career, with an all-star band of original vocalists and members of the P.A. System (including Donna McGhee, Leroy Burgess, Christine Wiltshire and Patrick Adams himself) – as well as full string and bass quartets – performing highlights from Adams’ catalog like you've never heard them before.
