For all the unequivocal admiration he still receives from some of the most well-respected pop musical artists, Leon Russell has always approached his career as a sideman. Having played alongside the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, the Beach Boys, Willie Nelson, Frank Sinatra, the Band and the Rolling Stones, the Master of Space and Time, as he is known, has been out of spotlight for decades. That has certainly changed with the release of “The Union,” a collaborative work with Elton John that earned a Grammy nomination for the single “If It Wasn't for Bad.” Before being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month alongside Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John and Tom Waits, Russell is scheduled to perform at the Hat Factory on Tuesday, March 1, at 7 p.m. $20-$30.
