Among these fluid and transcendent moments come compositions that drive the artists and audience to dizzying heights with forceful, percussive works that demand a visceral response. A few soulful vocals and a rousing finale rounds off the show with the audience literally on their feet singing along, backed by a stage overflowing with Cook’s band, featured guests, and an all female drumming ensemble. Adventurous and epic, the musical exploration found on “Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will enlighten, engage, and inspire you.
