The Indelible Festival at Highline Ballroom, Concha Buika at Carnegie Hall

We have plenty of great shows coming up at the Blue Note in this month, including McCoy Tyner, Kenny G, The Persuasions, Bill Frisell/Ron Carter/Joey Baron, and Diane Schuur, among others. But there are two shows that are happening outside of the Blue Note in the coming weeks that we want to let you know about:

1) TONIGHT: The Indelible Festival at the Highline Ballroom, produced by Jill Newman Productions.
Jill Newman Productions has put together a unique and diverse array of artists for tonight's show at the Highline to celebrate the life and music of Gil Scott-Heron, Gordon Parks, and living legend Jimmy Scott, including ?uestlove, Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def), Gary Bartz, Jimmy Scott, Cecil Taylor, Bilal, Derrick Hodge, and more. Click here for tickets.   

2) JANUARY 21: Concha Buika with Chucho Valdes at Carnegie Hall.
One of the best shows of 2011 was Chick Corea's Flamenco Heart, a brand new group that featured, among others, the popular Spanish vocalist Concha Buika. "Buika," as she is affectionately known to her fans, will front Chucho Valdes' all-star group at Carnegie Hall on January 21. Click here for tickets.
