David Bromberg: New Album With Levon, Dr. John, WSP & More
JOHN HIATT, KEB’ MO’, WIDESPREAD PANIC, LOS LOBOS AND OTHERS TO HELP
The results include the blues shuffle “Tongue,” the album’s lone Bromberg original, with Levon Helm on drums; “You Don’t Wanna Make Me Mad,” featuring David on slide guitar and Dr. John on piano; the ominous slow blues “Diggin’ in the Deep Blue Sea,” updated by Keb’ Mo’ and Gary Nicholson from Larry Davis’ “Texas Flood” to address the dangers of offshore drilling, and the chipper Vince Gill — Guy Clark co-write “Lookout Mountain Girl,” the only song on which Bromberg cedes most of the lead guitar duties to Vince (although he splits the lead with Widespread Panic’s Jimmy Herring on “Old Neighborhood”).
The resultant album is due for July 12, 2011 release on Appleseed Records. A national tour will ensue.
