4/15 The Cutting Room Presents: Al Green Birthday Party Concert Starring Romantasy-For The Luv of Al Green

Considered the last of the great soul singers, Al Green has attained an enduring legacy with his precious love songs and his indefinable romantic voice that continues to touch the hearts of multiple generations. His mega hits including “Love And Happiness”, “Tired of Being Alone” and “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” are forever solidified as benchmarks of soul music. 

Since 2007, Jimy Bleu has presented internationally a full production show featuring the music and finesse of Al Green. Having played dates as a guitarist with one of Green’s bands, Jimy has translated and captured Green’s allure and sensual approach to his songs, thus presenting the soulful voice and stage presence that made Al Green a household name. With excitement and total class, the show focuses on Green’s classic love songs of the 1970s with a devotion to his legacy second to none.

On performing Al’s legendary music Jimy Bleu states: “I’ve had the honor of playing guitar in the bands of many classic Soul/R&B greats like Wilson Pickett, Isaac Hayes, Joe Tex, Betty Wright, Jimmy Castor, and Don Covey to name a few, all of whom are definitive legends, but it was my short time in Al Green’s band which gave to me the desire to emulate the last of the great soul singers.”

“This man whose voice is synonymous with sensuality and whose classic hit songs from the 1970s still invokes melodic passion in the hearts of many today……..This is why I created the tribute show Romantasy For The Luv Of Al Green.”

About Jimy Bleu

Native New Yorker Jimy Bleu has been a professional singer/musician since his early teens. 

Throughout his many years around the world on stage, he has backed-up &/or toured with such notaries as Wilson Pickett, Slade, Betty Wright, Aerosmith, Isaac Hayes, J.Geils Band, Joe Tex, Foghat, New Birth, Al Green, Jimmy Castor, The Black Crowes, Don Covey, Brook Benton & Lonnie Youngblood to name a few.

Bleu’s training includes the High School of Performing Arts, Berklee College of Music, The New School, Greenwich House Music School & HB Studio. He was signed to indie label Select Records, then later was signed to Columbia/Def Jam Records. Blending a wide range of strong influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Sun-Ra, George Benson, Mahalia  Jackson, James Brown & George Gurdjieff, his stage show always delivers an exciting presentation of musical skill & showmanship. 

Working as a Columbia studio multi-musician, Bleu played on tracks for such artists as Oran “Juice” Jones, Alyson Williams & Chuck Stanley, earning him favorable reviews for his musicianship by the Village Voice & Daily News NYC publications.
