If you’ll pardon a little gushing here, David Bromberg is what music is all about. In a review of his wonderful album Only Slightly Mad, twangville.com declares that he returns “to the formula that made his 1970s albums so great – which is to say there is no formula at all.” No formula is exactly right! David is a mad musical scientist mixing a bit of Big Bill Broonzy with some Bill Monroe, adding a smattering of Stanley Brothers to a little Tom Rush, stirring in a few new originals – and the result is pure magic! Relix Magazine calls the album “a guided tour of a great American artist,” American Songwriter describes it as “so crazy good,” and the blues reviewer for about.com says it’s “a rock solid collection of Americana music that effortlessly ties past and present together with skillful, often humorous, and undeniably energetic performances. These guys love this music, and it shows!”
The man has played with half the Beatles, a good portion of the Grateful Dead, Dylan, Carly Simon, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, the Eagles, Phoebe Snow, and the list goes on. His musicianship on a multitude of instruments is world class. His original songs are clever, funny, and often profound. The depth of his knowledge of traditional folk and blues is staggering. He tells hilarious stories. And the musicians he plays with are always of the highest caliber. His current band includes Mark Cosgrove on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Butch Amiot on bass and vocals, Nate Grower on fiddle, mandolin, and vocals, Josh Kanusky on drums, and David himself on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and vocals. Oh, and let’s not forget that he’s the subject of a recent documentary, David Bromberg – Unsung Hero, and he just released a collection of outstanding early performances, David Bromberg Archive Recordings Volume 1: 1969-1979.
