To an electrified audience, BK Davis sang song after song with creative flair and excellence; Like a world series starting baseball pitcher, pitching a no hitter. With the grace of a champion figure skater on ice, he guided the audience comfortably into one song after the next. Contributing writer
Starting his show with a dramatic overture – fanfare of Stevie Wonder mega hits, he glides us into the body of the concert starting with, “Knocks Me Off My Feet”.
Davis’ arrangements of Wonder’s music is surprising with key change modulations and punctuated with pockets of silence where all you hear is the audience clapping in rhythm to the funky beats and grooves.
As a solo artist, Davis shows musical maturity and dizzying speed. Sheets of sound fill the air like an avant-garde Aaron Copland or a clever Leonard Bernstein. Sometimes playing with both forearms, crushing each register of the piano.
Davis might stop playing simply to stand up and sing the audience into musical ecstasy. Closing his show with a reprise, you know you’re in Heaven.
