There is no disputing the funk fusion greatness of War, the multi-racial band that came up in the ’70s and enjoyed their first career high with The World Is a Ghetto, their 1976 fifth LP, its title track a classic slice of swaggering wah-wah Afro jazz-rock with vocal harmonies that are at turns sweet, gospel-soulful, and deeply commanding, while its other hit “Cisco Kid” is the grooviest funkin’ jam, and one you should know as well as you likely know their cruising, best-known hit, “Low Rider,” or the upbeat shout-calling of “Why Can’t We Be Friends?,” or the ducking organ-driven groove and talk-sung storytelling of “Spill the Wine.” They’re all good, and those are just some of the charters. Leroy "Lonnie" Jordan is the only original member in the current seven-member lineup that’ll be playing this four-night, five-show run.
