Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and iconoclast David Bromberg, from his ’71 album debut to his latest album, BIG ROAD, is still pushing boundaries, still an iconoclast, still unapologetically unique, as he continues to explore his life’s journey via a path that might be considered “asymmetrical.” A master of American roots music idioms and possessed of an encyclopedic trove of musical knowledge, Bromberg’s spirited originals, blues classics and pubic domain chestnuts make for an incredible musical experience. Determined to give fans “something of value”—a tangible, content-rich package of music, film, text and photos—Bromberg and his ace band deliver 12 tracks, five hi-def performance videos and a mini-documentary detailing the album’s creation on this deluxe package, recorded at the Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY. BIG ROAD will be available in a gatefold vinyl album and a CD/DVD combo pack. In an age where recorded music has been devalued and relegated to a digital stream for smart phones, BIG ROAD returns the listener to the golden age of record-making, when enjoying an album was a tactile, visual and auditory experience. Reuniting Bromberg with GRAMMY®-winning producer/guitarist Larry Campbell, this collection is the most intimate portrait to date of David and his band, capturing Bromberg and his band in all of their road-tested glory.
“Bromberg is a hell of a band-leader as well as a nonpareil musician.”
“Bromberg has drawn upon decades of listening to and performing the blues to craft a flawlessly played and entertaining survey of the variations and possibilities within this still vibrant and adaptable source point or American Music.” —Living Blues
“This is a guy who knows no boundaries, and has mastered most musical genres in the course of a career that now spans over half a century.” —Elmore
