Remaking Michael

Why waste money (or steal) those bogus Thriller remixes when you can get better Michael Jackson reinventions legally — for free? Plus, the history of the classic Harlem Globetrotters song "Sweet Georgia Brown."

Davis got his big break after the president of Tempo heard him performing in a Chinese restaurant in Los Angeles, and his rendition of "Sweet Georgia Brown" became an instant hit. Thanks to its continuing use by the Globetrotters, the recording subsequently has had a life in every format from 78 rpm to MP3. Though Davis appeared on a number of television shows and in two feature films, the record remained his signature accomplishment, and he later toured and performed with the Globetrotters before passing away in 1974. — Dean C. Minderman

7 p.m. Friday, April 11. Chaifetz Arena, 1 Compton Avenue. $25 to $100. 314-534-1111.
