The New Stew feat. Corey Glover and Roosevelt Collier - Performing the album, Bill Withers: Live from Carnegie Hall, in its entirety Ages 18+ The New Stew is a super group of a handful of fine musicians from all genres of music that features Corey Glover (Living Colour, Galactic) on vocals, Roosevelt Collier (The Lee Boys) on Lap Steel/ Pedal Steel, Yonrico Scott (Derek Trucks Band, Royal Southern Brotherhood) on percussion, Dave Yoke (Susan Tedeschi Band, Dr. John, Scrapomatic) on guitar, Jared Stone (Stones Stew) on drums, and Matt Slocum (Oteil and the Peacemakers, Col. Bruce Hampton & Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Lee Boys) on piano. This project was formed with one focused goal, to pay respect to those recordings that influenced the players and to re-imagine recordings that they feel should be heard and experienced in a live setting.The first homage will be paid in Spring of 2016 when the group makes its debut in select cities playing the classic Bill Withers Live At Carnegie Hall album from start to finish. It is more than a labor of love, it is a way to allow the public to experience something again or in many cases the first time and reconnect with this classic recording over four decades since its release. The tour kicks off in early May in Cincinnati before heading up north to Philadelphia, Annapolis, Brooklyn, and Washington, DC and then loops down south for shows in Asheville and Atlanta.Bill Withers performance at Carnegie Hall on October 6, 1972, was recorded, and released as Live At Carnegie Hallin the following year. Recorded less than a year and a half since Withers quit his day job to pursue music full time, the then rising soul star commands the historic New York stage with veteran poise and power with songs like Use Me, Aint No Sunshine, and Lean On Me. In counting years as a live performer he was a novice but his ability to transform the hallowed venue to a tiny club and hold the audiences attention like a conversation, a feat that heightens the intimacy of the performance and accentuates the intensity of the songs.Withers along with his band moved fluidly, stretching out the songs beyond their initial recorded times, the subsequent jams take the audience on a ride the studio recordings were not able to do. The album ranks at number 27 on Rolling Stones list of the 50 Greatest Live Albums of All Time. Live At Carnegie Hall stands as one of the greatest live recordings of all time. and The New Stew is delighted to re-imagine this time-honored performance.
