Brian Setzer: Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!

BRIAN SETZER GIVES BLUEGRASS A
ROCKABILLY SPIN ON NEW ALBUM OUT APRIL 19

Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!
With its forays into bluegrass and traditional jazz, Brian Setzer's new album Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL! (out April 19 on Surfdog Records) has the guitar legend testing new waters and putting his signature Stray Cat stamp on a few instrumental favorites.

Setzer wrote six originals and revitalizes five jazz-bluegrass classics – “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” "Earl's Breakdown," "Cherokee," "Be-Bop-A-Lula," and "Lonesome Road." Recording each gave Setzer the chance to revisit old techniques and try new tricks, such as playing banjo on the Earl Scruggs' classic “Earl’s Breakdown,” or substituting jazz chords into traditional bluegrass on the Bluegrass Boys’ “Blue Moon of Kentucky.”
