DAVID BROMBERG - “THE REASON MAN CREATED STRINGED INSTRUMENTS”

(JERRY JEFF WALKER) - RETURNS WITH NEW ALBUM ‘THE BLUES, THE

WHOLE BLUES, AND NOTHING BUT THE BLUES’ OCTOBER 14 ON RED HOUSE

RECORDS

On October 14, David Bromberg – a godfather of Americana, decorated multi-

instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, gifted song interpreter and lauded

bandmate to the stars - will release 'The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing

But The Blues' (Red House Records). Produced by Levon Helm and Bob Dylan’s

longtime collaborator, Larry Campbell, Bromberg’s first album since 2013 is a

wonderfully curated selection of deep cuts from the blues genre, in addition to

original compositions. 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, a crack

band 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

David on a spellbinding solo acoustic guitar performance and vocals. David

learned the song “Why Are People Like That?” from a Muddy Waters record, a

song written by one of his favorite writers: Bobby Charles. Bromberg dug deep

into recorded music, sometimes finding songs with mysterious origins such as

“How Come My Dog Don’t Bark When You Come ‘Round,” or “900 Miles,” an old

country song imagined as if Howlin’ Wolf were to play it. 

Bromberg is “an American music icon” (Dr. John), and counts Bob Dylan,

George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Carly

Simon, The Eagles, and so many more as collaborators, fans and friends. This

is Bromberg’s 18th album, the latest in a solo career that began in 1971 on his

self-titled debut.
