Aesthetically Speaking

The Grammy-nominated Heritage Blues Orchestra is coming to the Dakota Jazz Club, Wednesday, Sept. 16 for two shows

hbo-hr-Heritage Blues Orchestra is billed as the grit of low-down country and urban blues with the bold brass of New Orleans with the hand-clapping fervor of gospel punctuated with fiery postmodern, jazz-infused horn arrangements. A Heritage concert takes the audience on a journey across the Middle Passage, on a drive down Highway 49 from Clarksdale, La. to New Orleans, from chain gangs and juke joints to orchestra pits, church pews and even back porches. Heritage Blues Orchestra’s music is an inspiring testament to the enduring power, possibilities and boundless beauty of African-American music.

The Wednesday shows at the Dakota, 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, are 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets range from $25 – $45. For more information call (612) 332-5299 or go to
