Lenny Kravitz at the Fillmore Miami Beach February 25
Lenny Kravitz is an artist who's been erroneously dismissed over the course of his career as merely a retro-mining musician whose greatest attribute is mimicking the best moments of music's past.
But like Prince, one of his obvious influences from the beginning, Kravitz has proven to be a singular talent, a multi-instrumentalist with a knack for absorbing a myriad of influences, from funk to soul to classic rock, and then presenting them in a vibrant way that feels instantly familiar without seeming hackneyed.
His inherent musicality is also often overshadowed by his songwriting. Black and White America, his latest effort, is a turbo-charged, funk-steeped juggernaut of some of his sharpest songs to date.
