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.
