Shirley Nanette performing the Never Coming Back LP live with the Albina Soul Revue Band! With support from DJs Jon Kirby (Numero Group) and Bobby D (Albina Music Trust).
Shirley Nanette has long been recognized by the regional music community for her dynamic vocal sensibility—performing jazz and classical works at festivals, on television, and with the Oregon Symphony as well as earning her a place in the Oregon Music Hall Of Fame. Less is known, however, about the degree to which her vocal work pulls from the roots of soul music. In 1973, Nanette released an LP entitled Never Coming Back. Featuring a cast of Albina area musicians, the record has been lauded by some as a critical piece of Portland soul music history. Tonight’s program will feature Shirley Nanette performing her seminal LP Never Coming Back in its entirety.
The Albina Soul Revue Band is an intergenerational group of Portland musicians under the direction of Tony Ozier. Since 2009, Ozier's "Dookie Jam" has served as an open forum for rappers, producers, and jazz musicians alike. With the Albina Soul Revue Band, Ozier has enlisted a veritable dream team of local heavies to perform original Albina soul music from the 1960s-80s. The group features Kenney Polson (Gil Scott-Heron, Jimmy Heath, Wynton Marsalis), Danny Osborne (Billy Graham, Shirley Nanette), Marquay Seamster (Prince), Kyle Molitor (Bootsy Collins), Noah Simpson (Noah Simpson Group), Dennis Dove (World Beat Collective), Ben "Snacks" Turner (KMHD, Dirty Revival), and Colin Jenkins (Ages and Ages)
