Among his many attributes, David Bromberg is a generous bandleader, and so the first guitar solo on his latest album is performed by sideman Mark Cosgrove. It's a doozy fittingly punctuated by a "Woo!" from Bromberg. There's plenty of room for the frontman to shine, too, on "The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues." Bromberg has never sung better, his wise, warm warble enhanced by masterful timing and droll wit. His guitar still gets its licks in, too, whether it's an electric slide on the Chicago-style original "You Don't Have to Go," or an acoustic on Ray Charles' "A Fool for You."

On My Own House Bromberg plays a program that ranges from traditional Scottish and American fiddle tunes through Delta blues and songs by Hoagy Carmichael and Phil Spector. Talk about Americana. As this album contains Bromberg's excellent version of Paul Siebel's "Spanish Johnny", I thought I'd add a link to a live version of Siebel doing his song. You will not find this version anywhere. By the way, its a wonderful song.

During the '70's, fiddlin' Vassar Clements was in such high demand as a side man that it was damned near impossible to purchase an album that did NOT feature his remarkable playing.In addition to his key roles in ground breaking efforts such as "Will the Circle be Unbroken" and "Old and in the Way", Vassar made the rounds among such disparate pop stars as Paul McCartney, Elvin Bishop, and Dickie Betts - and put out some product of his own, as well.

With most of the Grateful Dead on board, Bromberg creates another fine album.
A singular performer/writer/arranger, David's remarkable musical versatility and innovative resourcefulness have earned vast critical and popular acclaim. He is also impossible to classify: As one critic perceptively wrote, David Bromberg fits no pigeonholes. He is part of everything contemporarily musical. He is a product of blues, country, jazz, folk, and classical music.

Not many artists get requests from established musicians to appear on their first album. So why did George Harrison (you can hear his slide guitar on "The Holdup"), Bob Dylan and bluegrass legend Norman Blake offer their services to this unknown? Because of the fact that he'd already been on dozens of albums as a session player and shown extraordinary talent.
This is, quite simply, one of the best and most confident first albums ever made, and that's saying something.
Lots a humor, great musicians having a ball with terrific songs is probably a good description. I add the ryder that the last song "Sammy's Song" is none of these, explicit and tragic and "Last Song From Selby Jean" isn't all beer and skittles either, just class.
The live version of "Delhia" is, in my view, the definitive one while the aforementioned "The Holdup" co-written with Harrison is brilliant, an unknown gem from the former Beatle.
Truly essential, so do yourself a favour.

Wood is Brian Bromberg's debut for the A440 Music Group, and it is a very strong example of his extraordinary straight-ahead jazz skills as presented in three exciting formats. In addition to the six tracks he performs in a trio setting with drummer David Bromberg and pianist Randy Waldman, Brian Bromberg duets with Waldman on the inimitable "Days of Wine and Roses" and the beautiful tribute "Goodbye (For My Father)," which was previously released on You Know That Feeling. Two amazing solo performances – "Come Together" and "Star Spangled Banner" – add further credence to Bromberg's technical and creative virtuosity as one of the premier jazz bassists of his generation.

In his career, Brian Bromberg has recorded bop, fusion, and smooth with equal fluency and creativity on acoustic and electric basses. Choices is somewhat commercial, with funky rhythms, R&B-ish solos, and fade-outs. In general, the solos are more memorable than Bromberg's originals and grooves. While the material is mostly routine, the improvisations of Bromberg and altoist Eric Marienthal are excellent and the musicianship is impressive. But no real surprises occur, making this a lesser and generally easy listening effort by the hugely talented Brian Bromberg.

Brian Bromberg - the man of a thousand basses - is joined by a host of top-draw friends on what is arguably his most jazzy set since the Grammy-nominated 'Downright Upright'. Featured guests include Alex Acuña, Randy Brecker, Vinnie Colaiuta, George Duke, Bela Fleck, Larry Goldings and Jeff Lorber. "Surround yourself with excellence and you'll get excellence," Bromberg declares. "Compared to That is a jazz record. It's live and you hear that energy. It's the mentality, spirit and artistry of a spontaneous jazz record meets the highly produced production of a big pop record like David Foster would make…

David Chesky, born in Miami in 1956, settled in New York City in the 1970s and now identifies himself as an "urban orchestral composer." His Urban Concertos, of which he has written nearly a dozen, constitute his most substantial output. In the program notes for this recording of three of his concertos, he wrote, "Perhaps one can say my style is neo-impressionist. But I do not live on some quaint idyllic country farm, I live in the city that never sleeps! It is a hard-driving concrete jungle that pulsates around the clock." "Pulsating" is an apt descriptor for Chesky's music, which is notable for its restlessly high energy and rhythmic propulsiveness.
