Joe Live in Harlem

Joe performed a free show at the Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem last Tuesday in association with WBLS.

Our harlem2nippon team was entering on 124th and 5th Avenue and heading straight in to the available seats. To our surprise, despite the stormy weather, a lot of people showed up  at the outdoor theater in the park with umbrellas.  I guess Joe was worth sitting on a wet bench for and some rain.

Joe is The Man….I’ve been following his career since 1993 a performer to the fullest.  Over the course of 20 year of his career he has released 11 albums.

Dressed in white summer suite and a hat fashionable Joe entered on stage and opened his show with ”Stutter,” one of his hits from his 3rd album, “My Name Is Joe,” followed by “Don’t Wanna Be A Player” later bacame a hip-hop anthem with late Big Pun featured on remix.

He performed “Ride With U,” “All That I Am,” and all songs we loved. He is very engaging and his vocals were outstanding. He really showed us what good R&B music is about.

Joe’s cover version of the signature song by Frankie Beverly and the Maze, “Before I Let Go” was truly one of the highlights of the show.

He wound up jumping off stage and spent the last half of his performance in the middle of the audience. He sang “I Wanna Know,” “All The Things”, “ What If A Woman”, “Doubleback” and encouraged us to sing along with him. You could tell, he really appreciates his fans.The show was amazing. Joe sang his heart out and was extremely personable with fans.

He is one of the few artist that is so humble – love him….

私たちの大好きなR&Bシンガー、ジョーがハーレムのマーカス・ガーヴィー公園内の野外ステージで8月12日夕方7時より無料ライヴを行います。私たち、ハーレム2ニッポンのスタッフ及び仲間たちも押しかけますので、みなさんもお誘いあわせの上是非見に来てください。

この企画は、ニューヨークの夏の「サマー・ステージ」無料コンサートの一環で、ブラック・コミュニティーに貢献しているジョーのコンサートということで、地元のFMステーション、WBLSが協賛としてサポートしています。

ジョーといえば、1993年、マーキュリー・レコードよりデビュー・アルバム、「Everything」をリリースしましたが、注目されるようになったのは、1997年にジャイヴ・レコードに移籍して「All That I Am」を出してから。”All The Things (Your Man Won’t Do)”,  ビッグ・パンをフィーチャーしたリミックスでもお馴染みの“Don’t Wanna Be A Player”, “No One Else Comes Close”などの名曲でトップ・スターの座を獲得。以来、2000年には「 My Name Is Joe」。 2001 年、「Better Days」、 2003年「 And Then…..」、 2007年「 Ain’t Nothin’ Like Me」、 2008 年、「Joe Thomas, New Man」、 2009年 「Signature 」、2011年「 The Good, the Bad, the Sexy」、 2013年「 Doubleback: Evolution of R&B」とノン・ストップで活躍しています。

ジョーは今年の始め、長年「連れ添った」マネージャー、キダー・マッセンバーグと離別し、新しいマネージャー、ジェラルド・アイザックと契約、BMG傘下のレーベルよりニュー・アルバム「Bridges」をリリースしました。

8月12日のライヴでも新アルバムからの曲を披露してくれるとのこと。楽しみですね。

会場は120丁目、ハーレムの東にあるマーカス・ガーヴィー公園内の野外シアターです。パフォーマンスが始まるのは7時ですが、人気アーティストなので早めに行って場所取りする必要あり。みんなでジョーを応援しましょう。

Having put out more than 10 albums in 20 years, JOE has become one of R&B’s most accomplished and popular singers with seven Grammy nods along the span of his career. Singles such as “All The Things (Your Man Won’t Do),” “All That I Am,” “No One Comes Close” and “I Wanna Know” established Joe as a bona fide hit-maker who has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Moreover, his work with Mariah Carey (“Thank God I Found You”), Big Pun (“Still Not A Player”) and G-Unit (“Wanna Get To Know You”), shows that Joe is a much sought-after collaborator with some of music’s biggest and best artists. Joe’s most recent offering, Double Back:  Evolution of R&B, debuted as the #1 R&B album in the country on Billboard’s “R&B Albums” & #4 “Top 200” charts this past summer. With that success, Double Back has produced a top five single with its first release “I’d Rather Have A Love”.  With a new label deal in place PLAID TAKEOVER/BMG CHRYSALIS and new management, with veteran music executive Gerald “Plaid” Isaac, JOE is already gearing up for a successful 2014.  The top-selling R&B singer is currently in the studio putting together magnificent songs in preparation for his new commercial album 2014, summer release entitled “BRIDGES”. The lead single & video, “Love & Sex Pt. 2,” features the incredible and equally beautiful Kelly Rowland of X-FACTOR/Destiny’s Child fame and is currently impacting radio and TV heavily.  In support of his new release(s) JOE will be touring the US, Europe, Asia and abroad.
