Smooth delivery, high-spirited melodies, that velvet voice and a soul-stirring rhythmic foundation. All are the elements that Steve Winwood brings to Soundstage featuring his recent work from the album About Time along with his classic hits including "Why Can't We Live Together" and "Back in the High Life." Winwood also performs "Dear Mr. Fantasy" and "The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys" - hits from his days with Traffic (recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame).

Works from Winwood's current recordings represent a tapestry of tastes woven after 40 years in music. Winwood delivers a fiery performance of "Bully," but lets his voice simply smolder through on "Walking On." For his efforts, the crowd continually rewarded Winwood with standing ovations and cheers of adulation. Other highlights include the song "Rainmaker."
