He may no longer be around to share his unique ear and talent for making music, but some of jazz’s latest modern marvels have been picking up the torch that Ray Charles dropped when he died in 2004. The Bishops Arts Theatre Center, 215 South Tyler St., will host jazz great Joe McBride in a special Ray Charles tribute show called Unchain My Heart: A Tribute to Ray Charles. McBride, who has worked with other jazz greats like Grover Washington Jr., Dave Koz and Larry Carlton, performs some of Charles’ most memorable music with that unmistakeable Ray Charles swagger and style in a tribute to the man music called The Genius. The theater center will host shows at 7:30 p.m. from Thursday through Sunday. Tickets are $16.50 to $30 for the Thursday show and $20 to $30 Friday, Saturday and Sunday and can be purchased online at bishopartstheatre.org.
