The Tony winner will play the Wallis' Bram Goldsmith Theater at 8 PM.

“T Bone single-handedly changed the world of music and makes each project more perfect than the last,” said Buckley, who first worked with the producer when they were both 19 in Fort Worth, TX, in an earlier statement. “The gift of this project is beyond my ability to even express; it is my dream record.”

“All great art comes from the edge, not a place of comfort,” added Burnett. “Our vision was for a ghostly haunting sound, which I called ‘crime jazz,’ giving the project a timeless feel.”

Single tickets are available by visiting thewallis.org, in person at The Wallis Ticketing Services at 9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills and by phone at (310) 746-4000.

The title of the recording, according to press notes, comes from "the tradition in the theatre where, after the performance in the dark theatre, a lone light bulb is left on at night to keep the ghosts company. This light is called a ghost light."

"Ghostlight" was recorded at the Village Studios in Los Angeles.
