John Legend in concert at Foxwoods
John Legend is such a smooth operator.
Sure, it’s in his manner — just witness how he quietly and subtly sweet-talks singers on “The Voice.”
But it’s in his music, too. His latest album, “Bigger Love,” is a soulful confection. He goes from the sexy slow-burns of “Favorite Place” and “Ooh Laa” to the sheer (but, yes, still smooth) exuberance of “Bigger Love” and “One Life.”
Legend says these new songs are about joy, hope and resilience, and they should sound great live — so look forward to hearing them when Legend is in concert Saturday at Foxwoods.
Oh, and “Bigger Love” added another trophy to the “G” in Legend’s EGOT status; it won the Grammy for Best R&B Album.
John Legend, 8 p.m. Saturday, Premier Theater, Foxwoods; $76-$251; foxwoods.com.
