The Jazz & Blues @ Your Library series presents Detroit’s Queen of the Blues, singer Alberta Adams, in concert with RJ’s Rhythm Rockers at 7 p.m. Tuesday (June 28) at the Southfield Public Library, 26300 Evergreen Road.
Adams is well into her 90s but still delivers fine jump blues with an earthy, world-weary voice and the gravitas of a career that has spanned over 60 years, performing with the likes of Louis Jordan, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, T-Bone Walker, James Moody and Duke Ellington. The Rhythm Rockers are led by drummer and bandleader RJ Spangler.
Jazz & Blues is sponsored by the Friends of the Southfield Public Library and the Detroit Blues Society. This program is brought to you for free courtesy of the Jazz Foundation of America.
