2015 Essence Music Festival
CommentPosted by Susan on 06-07-2015

   

nola.com: Erykah Badu has a long history with the Essence Festival. She first appeared on the main stage of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as a newly minted neo-soul star in the late 1990s. She has returned multiple times over the years, always with a different look and, sometimes, a vastly different sound. She cultivates, and lives up to, her image as a free spirit.

On Saturday (July 4), she returned once again to Essence. Video screens on the stage revealed the upcoming August cover of Essence magazine, with Badu, photographed in Africa, on the cover. In person, her appearance was equally dramatic. She wore a top hat over a headwrap and an oversize Oxford-style shirt that was more like a cloak over a pair of bedraggled denim overalls. The ensemble was accentuated early on by a plaid blanket and abundant jewelry around her neck and on her wrists and fingers. Visually, there was a lot going on. Read more.

Before launching into her classic "Next Lifetime" at Essence Festival on Saturday night, Badu had a special announcement for the audience. The Texas songstress shared that she's the cover girl for ESSENCE's first-ever global issue. 
 
Looking up at her ESSENCE money shot on the big screen, she gleefully said, "Oh shit, that's me!"
 
The new issue hits stands on July 10!

Jazz fest concert review: Erykah Badu, Monday, June 29, 2015 at Place des Arts
CommentPosted by Susan on 01-07-2015

   

There was a time, over a decade back, when $50 to see Erykah Badu at Metropolis seemed steep. But no one balked to pay twice that price ($93.50 to $118.50) as the grand dame of neo-soul touched down at Place des Arts’s Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Monday night, as part of the Montreal International Jazz Festival.
 
Badu has always had a jazzy element to her music – something at once more earthbound and ethereal, bringing R&B away from the charts and clubs toward something more understated and organic.
 
It was on display from the opening minutes of the opening number, as her band jammed it’s way through the groove while awaiting the woman of the hour. But the intro dragged as she failed to take the stage – an example, perhaps of her other person: the diva. Read more.


2015 Ella Fitzgerald Award - Erykah Badu
CommentPosted by Susan on 01-07-2015

  

okayplayer.com: The mesmerizing talent of Erykah Badu is something to be celebrated every day of the year, but Monday night saw the R&B queen receiving very special honors in the name of one of jazz’s greatest vocalists. Badu was presented with the 17th annual Ella Fitzgerald Award at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal Monday. In receiving the award, Badu joins the ranks of Diana Ross, Sade, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Tony Bennet, Bobby McFerrin, Diana Krall and many more legends of soul, jazz and rhythm & blues.

Badu performed Monday night at the Montreal jazz fest, turning out performance that was, in the words of the local press, a top-notch display of her talents in “championship form.” Near the end of her set, Badu was presented with the award (which celebrates “an artist that had tremendous influence and the vocal hard of jazz and R&B”) on-stage by the festival’s co-founder Alain Simard, but the honors had actually been bestowed upon her hours earlier at a press conference.
