Touted as "the reason man created stringed instruments" by Jerry Jeff Walker, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist David Bromberg, a godfather of Americana, released his latest album The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues on Oct. 14. Produced by Levon Helm and Bob Dylan's longtime collaborator and three-time GRAMMY winner Larry Campbell, the album — Bromberg’s first since 2013 — is a 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.
Bromberg is "an American music icon" (according to 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.
"Austin Shaw comes from the classic mold of a true songwriter and artist … it’s the kind of music that gets played the most in your music collection. It’s the style that grows with you and around you, and will continue to do so as you live your own stories. If you like great music, you're gonna love Austin Shaw."– Robert L. Smith, Producer/Engineer/Mixer, Defy Recordings.
