Shuggie Otis is going on a world tour. The lineup is: Larry Douglas on trumpet, Albert Wing and Michael Turre on Sax, Nick Otis on the drums, James Manning on Bass, Swang is the keyboards and Eric Otis is on guitar. Shuggie will be on guitar, keyboards, and vocals. If you feel like you may remember the name Shuggie Otis from your parents record collection but maybe really don’t, just listen to Strawberry Letter 23 and remember the smooth funk & psychedelic soul of multi-instrumentalist songwriter Shuggie Otis, one of the most sampled artists of all time. Repeatedly sampled by artists such as Beyonce, Outkast, J Dilla, and more. He is releasing a new album – the first since 1974. Inspiration Information will be reissued packaged with Wings of Love, a 14-track album of unreleased songs recorded from 1975-2000. Out April 16th! And on April 26th the band will play the Mezzanine as part of the venue’s 10 year anniversary concert series.
