Jim James to Perform Upcoming New Album Live with NSO Pops


No matter what, you can figure that Jim James will be doing something different than the typical musician. The My Morning Jacket front man has had just as much success as a solo artist as his band has had, and a lot of that comes from his willingness to try things differently than most. Ahead of his release with Teddy Abrams the two will embark on a musical journey for a show titled The Order of Nature: A Song Cycle at The Kennedy Center Concert Hall.

The show will feature the National Symphony Orchestra lead by Abrams as well as local chorus The Capital Hearings. A once in a lifetime event for any fan of what James does, attendees will also get a chance to purchase an early edition of James’ and Abrams” album as well as a signed poster from the event. The first half of the evening will spotlight the NSO in Mason Bates’ “Warehouse Medicine” from the B-Sides, Julia Wolfe’s Big, Beautiful Dark and Scary and Copland’s Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo.

The show will take place on September 04 in Washington, DC at The Kennedy Center. It is a one night only event while the album collaboration between James and Abrams will be released on Decca Gold.
