Kansas: Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour @ Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo

Kansas: Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour @ Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo | Buffalo | NY | United States

Tickets on sale Friday, March 31 at 10:00AM

For the first time in its 43-year history, the band is performing the hit album, Leftoverture, in its entirety. The tour showcases more than two hours of classic KANSAS music including hit songs, deep cuts, and new songs from their new album, The Prelude Implicit.

“We are having so much fun doing these Leftoverture 40th Anniversary shows, we just want to keep doing them. We had no idea when we started doing these last fall that they would be so popular. When we first started discussing this concept, we were just hoping to be able to do ten of these type shows. We would not have predicted we would end up doing nearly 70 of them. I can’t think of a better way to wrap up 2017 before taking a break from the road at the beginning of 2018 to record a new studio album,” comments KANSAS guitarist and original member Richard Williams.

In 1976, KANSAS released the album Leftoverture. Containing the smash hit and million-selling single “Carry On Wayward Son,” along with fan favorites such as “The Wall,” “Miracles Out Of Nowhere,” and “What’s On My Mind,” Leftoverture became the band’s breakthrough album. The album peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Album charts and reached sextuple-platinum status with more than six million copies sold.

ORIGINATING FROM OVER 20 YEARS OF COLLECTING SONGS FROM THEIR SHARED ISRAELI AND JAZZ ROOTS, THE QUARTET’S LYRICAL AND VIBRANT REIMAGININGS OF BELOVED JEWISH MELODIES ARE CAPTIVATING AUDIENCES AROUND THE WORLD.

AMOS HOFFMAN
Amos Hoffman is an Israeli Jazz Oudist and Guitarist known worldwide as a pioneer in fusing the rhythms and melodic themes of the Middle East with Modern Jazz. Hoffman started playing guitar at the age of 6, and oud a few years later. He studied guitar privately and later attended the prestigious Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His search for new musical experiences led him first to Amsterdam, and then to New York City, where he played jazz with both established musicians and up and coming talents like Jason Lindner, bassist Avishai Cohen, and Claudia Acuna. To date, Hoffman has recorded 5 solo albums, The Dreamer (1999), Na’ama (2006), Evolution (2008) Carving (2010) and Back to the City (2015). He has also contributed to dozens more for artists in Israel and worldwide including Avishai Cohen, Kiko Berenguer (Spain), and Jan Mlynarski (Poland). In 2013 Amos was awarded one of Israel’s most prestigious prizes – The Landau Prize for Arts and Sciences for outstanding achievement in the field of Jazz. Now based in the U.S., Hoffman looks forward to creating new musical adventures and reaching an even larger audience.

Hotel Henry Jazz Concert Series: JazzBuffalo Presents Joe Policastro Trio @ Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center
Nov 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Hotel Henry Jazz Concert Series: JazzBuffalo Presents Joe Policastro Trio @ Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center | Buffalo | NY | United States

The Joe Policastro Trio will visit Buffalo’s landmark urban resort from the windy city of Chicago while on tour. The trio is led by bassist Joe Policastro (sideman for Phil Woods, Diane Schuur, and Jeff Hamilton) featuring guitarist Dave Miller and drummer Mikel Avery. While firmly rooted in jazz, the band’s open-minded, inclusive nature also brings rock, soul, funk, and Brazilian jazz to the surface while keeping the aesthetic of an acoustic jazz trio intact. Their third album, Screen Sounds (JeruJazz Records, August 11, 2017), is an assemblage of movie/TV music reimagined by the trio. Previous uniquely arranged album concepts included Pops!, a collection of arranged pop hits, and West Side Story, an intricately produced album of jazz arrangements scored to this iconic Broadway musical. The band takes aim at uniquely arranging familiar tunes into artistic jazz arrangements and hits the mark to the rave review of critics.
