Brian McKnight

Brian McKnight’s 2013 album, “More Than Words,” had many echoes of the ’70s and ’80s — from Stevie Wonder and Michael McDonald to Steely Dan and Hall & Oates. But how much of a role McKnight’s 15th album will play in concert remains to be seen. Working solo three years ago at the Dakota, the 1990s R&B crooner proved a charmer, with his makeout music, witty conversation and musical impressions. And he promises that, with bassist Chris Loftlin and guitarist Tyrone Chase, it will be like his “solo show only on steroids.” Jon Bream
