Zo!, Carmen Rodgers 

When: Sun., Sept. 18, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $10-$15



A first-rate show like this is usually presented within Art of Cool Project's monthly Caramel City music series, but this one stands on its own—and rightly so, especially given all of the space that Detroit-bred producer, instrumentalist, Foreign Exchange associate, and soul stylist Lorenzo "ZO!" Ferguson commands. He has a keen ear for compositions and a knack for deftly condensing the grandest emotions into sweet slices of sound in the finest Motown tradition. This is especially apparent on songs such as the Muhsinah-assisted "Packing for Chicago," from this year's Skybreak. Ferguson's most lethal rub is when he goes full Foreign Exchange and lets the chords coach the song. He pulls off this play with almost any vocalist, but when he and Carmen Rodgers perform together, as on "Wishing You Well" and other collaborations, their chemistry proves to be the essential element of their sophisticated soul. —Eric Tullis
