Bobby Caldwell Comes Home To B.B. Kings With 'What You Won't Do For Love'
A timeless artist whose career spans nearly thirty years of chart topping singles and multi-platinum albums, New York's native son Bobby Caldwell is returning home for two shows this month at the legendary B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on January 23rd at 7:30pm and 10:00pm. These performances are sure to attract a diverse audience made up of R&B fans of his earlier "blue-eyed soul" chart toppers, youngsters who listen to urban contemporary, older fans of the classic "standards", and even POPS symphony audiences. Drawing from his vast repertoire, fans of all ages will be thoroughly entertained by Caldwell's superb vocal mastery and heart-rendering performances, brimming with swaggering confidence and sensuality.Bobby Caldwell is perhaps best known for his double-platinum and chart-topping song and album of the same name released in the late 1970s, "What You Won't Do For Love" and for his later hits "Next Time I Fall" and "Heart Of Mine." Tracing a twenty-eight year history from acclaimed soul stylist to in-demand pop and R&B songwriter, Bobby Caldwell appeals to a large and diverse crowd. In fact, "What You Won't Do For Love" has been recorded and sampled by more than 100 contemporary artists, including a rendition by Boyz II Men. A sample of Bobby's song "Open Your Eyes" appeared in the Grammy nominated platinum rap hit "The Light" by Common. All combined, Bobby's songs and samples have contributed to over 40 million CD sales. Artists as diverse as Tupac Shakur, Michael Bolton, Roberta Flack, Go West, Vanessa Williams and Notorious B.I.G. have all paid tribute to the blue-eyed singer in the slouch hat. Most recently Bobby's classic song was sung by Elliot Yamin during the final 3 round of American Idol 2006. His songwriting skills have earned hits not only for himself, but also for well-known artists like Chicago, Boz Scaggs, Peter Cetera and Amy Grant, Neil Diamond, and Al Jarreau. Tickets: $45/$65
