Join host Tom Shaker as we celebrate the music of one of soul music's most prolific artists. Bobby Womack was an incredible songwriter, guitar player and singer. For over 50 years he blended his unique style of soul, blues, country, gospel and rock together in songs like "It's All Over Now" "Woman's Gotta Have it" "Across 110th Street" and many more. It all starts at 7pm!
The jazz-fusion stars of Snarky Puppy have toured and recorded all over the world; they’ve won a Grammy Award and were just nominated again. But their spiritual home is still Dallas, Texas. It’s where they’d take in gospel performances in area churches; it’s near where they met at music school at the University of North Texas in Denton. As bassist and bandleader Michael League explains, you can hear all those collisions in the funk of their grooves. Jazz Night in America meets up with League for an exclusive conversation about his compositional process – and witnesses its execution in a live hometown concert at The Prophet Bar in Dallas.
