OKP Exclusive: Anthony Hamilton, Branford Marsalis & Jonathan Butler Join Bill Withers Tribute At Carnegie Hall

As if the original roster wasn’t potent enough, the forthcoming Bill Withers tribute at Carnegie Hall just got even more fire power. A night that already has some of the most timeless voices of  a generation now has a modern jazz giant in Branford Marsalis, a muscular soul man in Anthony Hamilton and a do-it-all dynamo in Jonathan Butler joining D’Angelo, Ledisi, Michael McDonald, Dr. John, Gregory Porter and more at the legendary concert hall. And there may not be a more qualified roster for the task, who endeavor to recreate one of the more cherished live recordings in history; Withers’ own Carnegie concert from 1973, which introduced at least this writer to a talent and voice unseen and unheard. Lean On Him: A Tribute To Bill Withers At Carnegie Hall goes down October 1st, helmed by compositional great Greg Phillinganes and music director Michael Dorf, who has organized and churned out historic tributes to David Byrnes and Prince in the past, both on that very stage.

Below you will find a link to purchase tickets for the event, but be sure to act with a swiftness; an homage of this caliber is certain to sell out. Join us and several some-odd thousand others for a legendary night and celebration of soul music superhero Bill Withers. You certainly won’t regret it.
