Samsung Summer Krush feat. Maxwell
September 2, 2009
Samsung Summer Krush concert series, a limited engagement music tour featuring major recording artists, small venues nationwide and yes, FREE tickets. Each Samsung AT&T Summer Krush event will feature a one hour, high-energy performance by a chart-topping musical artist. Next stop, Boston featuring Maxwell! After an extended hiatus, Maxwell, the sexy ambassador of soul has returned with a brand new look and a fresh yet deliciously vintage sound. The same artist who brought us classic songs like “Sumthin’ Sumthin’,” “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder)” and “Lifetime” (not to mention the unforgettably ethereal cover of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work”) is back with a challenging, mature, sensual, courageous and emotionally open album entitled, BLACKsummers’night (Columbia).
His fourth studio album and first in eight years, BLACKsummers’night is the sound of an artist taking the commitment to his craft and the conversation with his audience that much further. Needless to say, it is a conversation that’s been overdue; but as the soft-spoken, multi-platinum artist sees it, in order to come back it was necessary to step away. The album is the first installment of a trilogy entitled BLACKSUMMERS’NIGHT. BLACK is a much darker but soulful compilation, SUMMERS’ leans more toward the gospel side and NIGHT is more a cool collection of slow jams. Composed of nine indelible songs BLACKsummers’night finds Maxwell exploring life with a bold and purposeful sensuality unmistakably his own, and ready to give old fans and new ones a sensory experience that he never fails to bring.
