David Bromberg

 

On October 14, David Bromberg – a godfather of Americana, decorated multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, gifted song interpreter and lauded bandmate to the stars - will release 'The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues' (Red House Records). Produced by Levon Helm and Bob Dylan’s longtime collaborator, Larry Campbell, Bromberg’s first album since 2013 is a wonderfully curated selection of deep cuts from the blues genre, in addition to original compositions. Bromberg found his inspiration for the album when he heard Willie Nelson repeat a quote from Texas fiddler Johnny Gimble: "there's only two kinds of music - the Star Spangled Banner and the Blues."

Through Bromberg’s unparalleled playing and gift for interpretation, a crack band and Campbell’s tasteful horn arrangements, the record reaches electrifying heights as well as intimate acoustic moments, breathing fresh life into the songs of Robert Johnson, Bobby Charles, George “Little Hat” Jones, Ray Charles, and Sonny Boy Williamson, among others.

Ray Charles’ “A Fool For You” is one of many album stand-outs, featuring just David on a spellbinding solo acoustic guitar performance and vocals. David learned the song “Why Are People Like That?” from a Muddy Waters record, a song written by one of his favorite writers: Bobby Charles. Bromberg dug deep into recorded music, sometimes finding songs with mysterious origins such as “How Come My Dog Don’t Bark When You Come ‘Round,” or “900 Miles,” an old country song imagined as if Howlin’ Wolf were to play it.

Bromberg is “an American music icon” (Dr. John), and counts Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, The Eagles, and so many more as collaborators, fans and friends. This is Bromberg’s 18th album, the latest in a solo career that began in 1971 on his self-titled debut.

The David Bromberg Quintet will bring their exuberant live show across the east coast this fall, including a trio of “Belated Birthday Bashes” featuring Tom Rush, Larry Campbell, and Teresa Williams. Full dates below.

For the scores of fans that have followed singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke's career over the last 12 years, Steady Pull, her latest release, is a highly anticipated addition to her much loved discography. For listeners who aren't yet familiar with Jonatha's sophisticated songwriting and dazzling musicianship, Steady Pull will introduce them to one of the most exciting talents of the era. With its funk and rock inspired rhythms and catchy melodies, Steady Pull is a powerful addition to Jonatha's already acclaimed body of work. It's also a testament to her newfound independence. Like Live, her previous CD, Steady Pull is to be released through Bad Dog Records, Jonatha's own label. And like Live, Steady Pull promises to reach listeners through a combination of traditional retail avenues, her web site, and other on-line ventures.

Musically, Steady Pull combines the raw sensitivity of Jonatha's earlier work with the wiser, edgier vibe of an artist who is constantly maturing and evolving. The lyrics evoke sentiments of new beginnings, personal transformation, and the terrifying, exhilarating rush of venturing into unknown territory. From the infectious melody of "Linger" to the haunting waltz of "Your House" to the deep groove of the title track, Steady Pull constantly pushes the envelope and delivers the kind of high quality, truly innovative musical experience that is all too rare these days. Steady Pull is a turning point for Jonatha. She co-produced all twelve songs with legendary mixer/producer Bob Clearmountain. She is also joined by some powerhouse guest artists. Michael Franti of Spearhead lends a funky, sexy vocal part to the title song, and Neil Finn of Crowded House fame, accompanies her on the exuberant ballad "New Dress."

For more than a decade, Jonatha has proven herself to be the uncommon artist who is both an authentic talent and a captivating performer. With her former band, the Story, she made two stellar albums, Grace in Gravity and The Angel in the House. 1995 brought Plumb, her first solo record, a masterpiece of songwriting and vocal performance that incorporated a pop sensibility with her trademark harmonies. In 1997, Jonatha released her second solo album, Ten Cent Wings upping the ante and venturing even further into the pop/rock arena. Ten Cent Wings was instantly noted; critics singing Jonatha's praises, and fans singing the lyrics, as soon as the track "Secrets and Lies" hit the charts. Billboard magazine called Jonatha "one of the most gifted and unique artists of the decade."

There's something very special about seeing Jonatha perform live. She develops an intimate rapport with her audience that can make a dance hall feel like a small coffeehouse. By the same token, her fans cheer so enthusiastically that a smoky club can begin to sound like Madison Square Garden. Out of this phenomenon rose Jonatha Brooke Live, a collection of live performances of songs culled from her earlier albums. Jonatha breathed new life into these songs, creating grittier, sparser textures so that they completely transcended their original incarnations. The high profile rave reviews continued: Rolling Stone declared, "The world hasn't heard the end of her."
