The Curtom Orchestra Presents Curtis Mayfield
The Curtom Orchestra are an all-star band and vocalist featuring members of Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies, Incognito and more who will be celebrating the life and music of Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions on the night of what would have been the Chicago Soul Legend’s 78th Birthday.
It is now 20 years since the passing of Chicago Soul Singer-Songwriter & Producer Curtis Mayfield. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Curtis Mayfield commenced his musical career as part of a gospel choir. After meeting Jerry Butler he formed The Impressions in 1956. The Impressions recorded many classics including ‘We’re a Winner’, ‘I’m So Proud’, ‘It’s All Right’, ‘For Your Precious Love’ and the politically-charged ‘People Get Ready’.
The Curtom Orchestra will be performing all of the classics from throughout the career of Curtis Mayfield tonight.
