Seeger Session Tour

*** CD jetzt bestellen ***
*** DVD jetzt bestellen ***

SONY wird am 01. Juni 2007 ein „Seeger Session Tour“ Album bzw. DVD veröffentlichen:

„Bruce Springsteen & The Seeger Session Band – Live in Dublin“

Columbia Records will release ‚Bruce Springsteen With The Sessions Band Live in Dublin‘ June 5, a concert DVD, and separate two-CD set release. The two-CD set and DVD both feature 23 songs drawn from the band’s performances in Dublin, Ireland at The Point on November 17, 18 and 19, 2006. Songs include fan favorites from ‚The Seeger Sessions,‘ radical interpretations from the Springsteen songbook and rare songs appearing for the first time on any Springsteen release.

Springsteen’s longtime manager Jon Landau said, „‚Live in Dublin‘ charts the development of a band from an informal gathering in Bruce’s living room to an onstage powerhouse. It also documents the growth in Bruce’s vision of American music; it includes folk music, blues, Dixieland, country, swing, gospel, rock, down to and including his own writing. It’s all performed with Bruce’s classic energy and focus. I think it’s some of the finest music he’s ever made.“

The DVD and CD captures the band during the finale of its multi-leg 2006 tour. The Word Magazine (UK) said of a concert on this tour, „I have never, make that NEVER, seen a show better than the one mounted by Bruce Springsteen and his band at Wembley Arena on Saturday, November 11, 2006.“ The Sunday Business Post Agenda (UK), in a 5 star review, said, „During the concert’s numerous high points, the crowd was ecstatic and Springsteen was the preacher, spreading a welcome message: We’re open all night.“

Bruce Springsteen with The Sessions Band’s tour last year prompted other incredible reviews. „Sometime, somewhere, a more dramatic and exhilarating confluence of music with moment may have existed… But in nearly 40 years of concert-going, I haven’t witnessed one,“ said LA Times. The Washington Post declared, „It was the best live show I’ve seen in at least five years. (And I’ve seen a few.)“ Meanwhile, The Independent (UK), said, „It’s been an astonishingly rich evening.“ The Observer (UK) proclaimed, „Springsteen and the Seeger Session band were an inspiring triumph.“

‚Bruce Springsteen With The Sessions Band Live in Dublin‘ was produced by George Travis and produced and edited by Emmy Award winner Thom Zimny, who recently took home a Grammy Award for directing „Wings For Wheels: The Making Of Born To Run,“ a DVD in the acclaimed ‚Born To Run‘ box set. Legendary mixer Bob Clearmountain mixed the DVD in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. Bob Ludwig mastered the DVD and CD at Gateway Studios. Documented with nine cameras, the concert was filmed in High Definition (HD).

Jesse Malin – “Broken Radio” – das Video mit Bruce Springsteen

Zu Jesse Malins neuem Song „Broken Radio“ gibts jetzt auch ein Video:


Jesse Malin – Glitter in the Gutter
Glitter in the Gutter is the new album from NYC’s Jesse Malin, an artist who has transcended tags like “singer/songwriter” for something different and largely indefinable.
Penned “a fearless storyteller”
(music critic Nigel Williamson), after releasing two critically acclaimed albums The Fine Art of Self Destruction and The Heat, Jesse has established himself as a career musician who writes songs that connect on so many levels that above all, he’s a healer. The songs on Glitter in the Gutter have kept the intimate slice of life and detail of his previous records but also work on a larger palate. Jesse writes locally but thinks globally and makes his songs identifiable so that they can connect with people in every part of the world.
On this new album, he writes about hope, struggles and smiles; about finding ways “to keep on keeping on.” Through his characters, like the woman who searches for salvation across the car radio dials in his song “Broken Radio”, or the kid hiding his face in the cereal box in “Modern World”, Malin points out “the little things that keep us laughing.” Malin is able to convey happiness and sadness in the same note. This happens throughout Glitter in the Gutter. He explains that Glitter in the Gutter is “just a record about people and the things we do to stay alive.”
The available time and iconography surrounding Glitter in the Gutter allowed Jesse to make the album he’s only hinted at with previous releases. “I’ve never made a record outside of New York my whole life—not even above 14th Street—so it was a different experience to be locked away in California,” he explains about the experience of recording the album in Los Angeles. “Right before we came out to [to California] I lost my apartment in New York, so I threw everything in storage in Queens and packed my life in a suitcase. So, yeah, this album had a lot of transient fugitive properties.”
Whether it was that type of personal impermanence or the uncertainty of our country’s future, Glitter in the Gutter is a wide musical spectrum. This album is an up-tempo, raw modern pop record that feels like a celebration of life as well as a rally to arms from the minute it begins with the anthemic opener “Don’t Let The Take You Down”. Glitter contains some work from guests of fellow musicians that Jesse has met on the road over the last 3 years, such as Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, who plays his signature guitar riffs on “Tomorrow Tonight” and Chris Shifflet of the Foo Fighters, whose iron fisted rhythms appear on “Prisoners of Paradise”. Jakob Dylan adds sweet sad harmonies on “Black Haired Girl” and there is a piano fueled duet with Bruce Springsteen titled “Broken Radio” that includes the sonic jubilee of Ryan Adams on electric guitar. There are also some other very special moments with Ryan (producer of Malin’s debut The Fine Art of Self Destruction, old pal and sometimes partner in crime) like his Latina guitar and back-ups vocals on the album closer “Aftermath”, and his blistering rock on “Modern World” and “Little Star”. Jesse remarks, “to me it’s all about songs, whether written by Elton John or Wilco or The Bad Brains”.
Jesse finds comfort in the transient life of living out of a suitcase and being under the hot stage lights sweating with the crowd. A Queens born NY native who now resides downtown Manhattan, he grew up touring in punk bands (DGeneration and Heart Attack). He will spend most of the year touring with his new rock band The Heat. Jesse feels that “being in a rock band is like being in a gang. Music should make you want to run through the streets with your pals, or make you want to fall in love or raise a glass.”
Of the live experience, he believes “it is equally, if not more important to the connection, especially in these days of enhanced home entertainment computerized myspace.com addictions. How else can you get people out of their houses today?” he quips. When he performs, it’s about interaction through participation. He gives his fans something to celebrate. When he sits down on the floor among the crowd in mid-song, everyone follows.
“We were born in flames, maiden names, suburban homes, make your bones Bite your lip, take the fifth, know your rights, it’s your life now Don’t let them take you down….it’s a beautiful day.”
