RED BANK: STATION STOP FOR JAZZ, SOUL
The O’Jays team with their chart-topping ’70s soul contemporary Gladys Knight for a Basie doubleheader on Thursday. Saxman Boney James (below) throws fusion-jazz buffs a bone on Wednesday.
As summer 2015 winds down, the year-round concert action continues unabated on the boards of Red Bank’s Count Basie Theatre stage with the latest in an ongoing slate of shows designed to bolster the tradition of “Jazz at the Basie, Where It Belongs.”
It resumes Wednesday night with platinum-plated saxman James “Boney James” Oppenheim, and continues Thursday with chart-toppers Gladys Knight and the O’Jays.
