From the Soundboard is a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, November 28 in recognition of his recent passing, we will focus on the brilliant (and grossly overlooked) singer/songwriter Terry Callier.
“Terry Callier (was born in Chicago and was friends with Curtis Mayfield and the singer Jerry Butler as a child) a veteran musician who released a handful of critically acclaimed jazz-folk albums in the Seventies and toured with George Benson and Gil Scott-Heron, had scant commercial success at the time, and had given up his musical career in the Eighties to raise his daughter. He was working at the University of Chicago as a computer programmer in the early Nineties when his music was rediscovered in England, sparking a career revival.” [Rolling Stone]
