THE COOKE BOOK: THE MUSIC OF SAM COOKE STARRING DARRIAN FORD
Saturday, September 3rd, 2022
Starting at 7:30 PM
Downtown Cowtown at the Isis in Fort Worth, TX
THE COOKE BOOK is a celebration of Cooke’s innovative but too brief career that blazed a trail for Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and many other icons of soul music and contemporary artists.
The show includes 22 songs from the songbook of the legendary singer/songwriter that highlight Cooke’s musical journey in Gospel, his transition into an international pop sensation, his remarkable Jazz and Blues interpretations from his Copacabana appearance, and his lasting legacy as an unmatched music icon.
