Leon Russell, Medusa Stone 

When: Wed., March 2, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $20-30

Leon Russell first earned fame as one of Phil Spector's studio ringers. He established his own artistry during the mid-'70s with the hit singles "Tight Rope" and "Lady Blue," as well as the landmark concert triple-album Leon Live. Though he's a gifted and versatile performer, Russell's star dimmed by the end of the '70s, and he disappeared for much of the next two decades. He returned in 1999 with the third volume of his country-flavored Hank Wilson series, and he has shown plenty of vitality since. His recent output is highlighted by 2007's Angel in Disguise, a greasy mix of Muscle Shoals soul and gospel blues swagger. Last October saw the release of The Union, a rootsy collaboration with Elton John. —Chris Parker
