When Brian Culbertson was an introverted 20-year-old just kick-starting his contemporary jazz career with his debut album Long Night Out, few would have imagined that he soon would become an extroverted showman known for his electrifying concerts.

His sensuous, melodic and high-energy style has forged eight hit albums and 20 No. 1 Radio & Records airplay singles in the ensuing 13 years. And he's smooth jazz's golden boy at the box office. His tickets sales are even hotter than his riveting live acts.

Consequently, Culbertson has been the darling of FirstEnergy Berks Jazz Fest audiences over the years. And the good news is that Culbertson is coming back to Reading for a special FirstEnergy Berks Jazz Fest Fall Concert.

"An Evening With Brian Culbertson" will be held Saturday, October 28th, at 8 p.m. at the Sovereign Performing Arts Center, 136 North Sixth Street.

Culbertson the live performer is a visual as well as an audio delight. At times he's swaying sensuously around his keyboards, simultaneously seducing his keys and the women in the audience. At other times he's bouncing around the stage with dynamic energy as he jams with the band. And then there are times when he grabs the trombone and blows hot and heavy with his horn section.

His latest album, It's On Tonight, was unabashedly produced to be a true "instrumental makeout record." Which triggered Jazziz magazine to rave, "With this album, which most effectively transfers that soothing eroticism to disc, he is officially become the Barry White of smooth jazz."

Actually, Brian Culbertson very much remains uniquely himself. And that one and the same Brian Culbertson is certain to enchant and entertain Sovereign Performing Arts Center patrons on October 28th.
