David Bromberg Quintet
For David Bromberg – a godfather of Americana, decorated multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, gifted song interpreter and lauded bandmate to the stars – it all began with the blues. His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades and includes, but is not limited to, adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young artists as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s master of several stringed instruments, including the guitar, fiddle, Dobro, and mandolin, and multiple styles is legendary leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. He even co-invented a new genre: Newgrass. In October of 2016, Bromberg released The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues’, produced by Levon Helm and Bob Dylan’s longtime collaborator, Larry Campbell. This is his first album since 2013 is a wonderfully curated selection of deep cuts from the blues genre, in addition to original compositions. “The reason man created stringed instruments.” Jerry Jeff Walker
