The program is packed with classics like “Can’t Trust Your Neighbor”, “Mr. Bojangles” and “I Feel the Same”. Bob James (keyboards), Richard Tee (p, organ), Bernard Purdie (d), Steve Gadd (d), Ralph MacDonald (perc), Hubert Laws (fl), Michael Brecker (sax), Jon Faddis (t) and Patti Austin (vocals) are among the many talented musicians that appear on Performance and they help deliver a soulful, blues experience.
