Peter Case, founding member of the Nerves and leader of the Plimsouls, and the first troubadour of the post-punk era, returns with his first album of new songs since 2010’s Wig! The Nerves’ 1976 “Hanging on the Telephone” EP, its title song covered by Blondie, remains a classic and has earned the band a strong following of young fans around the world. The Plimsouls song “A Million Miles Away” is a power pop classic. Case’s debut solo album, produced by T-Bone Burnett, earned him his first Grammy nomination and spearheaded a songwriter movement, now dubbed Americana. Twelve solo albums and two more Grammy nominations followed, including one for his 2007 album Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John.

All along, Case has continued to tour consistently. HWY 62 collects tales from his journey, and brilliantly encompasses every facet of his diverse and critically acclaimed career. Much like a travelogue, HWY 62 includes pieces of Americana, blues, pop, and folk — all anchored by Case’s knack for creating the perfect hook.

It’s often said that history repeats itself but in the instance of making music, a reunion of two performers will not necessarily bring about the sounds of their collective past. Grammy-winning saxophonist/composer Joe Lovano and the equally lauded guitarist/composer John Scofield are preparing another turn together in the public eye. One of the most popular groups of the early 1990’s, Scofield and Lovano have both built their own followings since departing their shared bandstand.  Since then, the opportunity to hear them together has been few and far between.  Listeners will rejoice at this rare opportunity to hear two modern masters reunite on stage.

“Bearing Witness: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement by Ernest C. Withers,” in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School features compelling black-and-white photographs taken between 1961 and 1968. The exhibit will run through May 16, 2018.

Withers was the only photographer who covered the entire trial of those charged with killing Emmett Till, a black teenager wrongly accused of whistling at a white woman, and Withers’ self-published photo pamphlet of the murder and trial helped spur the movement for equal rights. Over the course of his career, Withers accumulated a collection of an estimated 1.8 million photographs. His work appeared in publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, Jet, Ebony, Newsweek, Life, and Time; was collected in four books; and has been featured in touring exhibits and shows around the world. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., currently displays more than 30 of his images. Withers was elected to the Black Press Hall of Fame and received an honorary doctorate from the Massachusetts College of Art.

The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School, 755 South Price Road, St. Louis, MO, 63124. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays. The exhibit is free to the public. For more information, contact Donya Allison (Fine Arts) at 314/993-4045, ext. 229, dallison@jburroughs.org.
