David Bromberg Quintet
|David Bromberg, GRAMMY®-nominee, decorated multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, gifted song interpreter and lauded bandmate to the stars will return to the Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, March 15 at 8 pm. After three years, Bromberg recently released a wonderfully curated album, filled with selections of deep cuts from the blues genre and original composition. The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues was produced by Levon Helm and Bob Dylan’s longtime collaborator, Larry Campbell. 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 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 Bromberg on a spellbinding solo acoustic guitar and vocal performance. This is Bromberg’s 18th album, the latest in a solo career that began in 1971 on his self-titled debut.
