David Bromberg releases “The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues”


Dubbed “an American music icon” (Dr. John), David Bromberg, whose incredible career includes collaborations with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, The Eagles, and so many more, will release The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues on October 14, his first release with Red House Records(available on CD, LP and through all major digital providers). A master interpreter and multi-instrumentalist, Bromberg’s first album since 2013 is a wonderfully curated selection of deep cuts from the blues genre, in addition to original compositions.  This is the Godfather of Americana’s 18th album, the latest in a solo career that began in 1971 on his self-titled debut.

Bromberg found the 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, and Sonny Boy Williamson, among others. Ray Charles’ “A Fool For You” is one of many album stand-outs, featuring just David on a spellbinding solo acoustic guitar performance and vocals.
