Jackson Browne In November
Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Larry Campbell and singer/guitarist Teresa Williams, who join the tour in September, are staying on the road with Browne through Nov. 17. After working with a long list of acts including Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Little Feat, Phil Lesh, Hot Tuna, and Emmylou Harris, on Tuesday the husband and wife duo finally released their self-titled debut together on Red House Records.
Browne is also supporting a new LP. Marking his first album of new material in six years and 14th studio album overall, Standing in the Breach came out last fall. The release is described by his PR rep as “a collection of 10 songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.”
In its four-star review Rolling Stone writes, “Musically, Browne’s signature sound remains country-tinged folk rock, infused with the spare elegance of Protestant hymns. ‘Leaving Winslow,’ whose title nods slyly to that famed ‘corner in Winslow, Arizona’ that Browne immortalized with co-writer Glenn Frey in ‘Take It Easy,’ propels forward on an infectious rockabilly beat, as does ‘You Know the Night,’ set to lyrics by Woody Guthrie. The rocker ‘If I Could Be Anywhere,’ featuring keyboardist Benmont Tench and drummer Jim Keltner as guests, beautifully fades out on a dreamlike melody that evokes the more-perfect world Browne believes we still can attain.”
Jackson is joined on tour by his longtime band featuring Bob Glaub on bass, Mauricio Lewak on drums, Jeff Young on Hammond organ and piano, Chavonne Stewart and Alethea Mills on harmony vocals, and Greg Leisz on guitar, lap steel and pedal steel.
