Leon Russell, Medusa Stone 

When: Sun., April 18, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $20-30
A good place to start when considering Leon Russell’s five-decade, wandering-prone career is his Tulsa-based Starlighters, who toured with Jerry Lee Lewis (another fair piano pounder) in the late ’50s. Then move into his Wrecking Crew (studio musicians as ninjas), Asylum Choir, and Mad Dogs & Englishmen days. In there somewhere, Russell released his first solo record, with guests including Beatles and Stones. He did country as Hank Wilson, and he wrote the George Benson crossover smash “This Masquerade.” But there are a dozen words that, with carnival-tent piano rolling in the background, remain his signature: “I’m up on the tight wire/ One side’s ice and one is fire.” —Rick Cornell
