We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T.S. EliotTheres only two kinds of music the Star Spangled Banner and the blues. Willie Nelson, quoting renowned fiddler Johnny Gimble For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues.His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes but is not limited to adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musicians musician, Brombergs mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartfords hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass. Add in a period of self-imposed exile from his passion (1980-2002), during which he became a renowned violin expert, and Wilmington, Delawares cultural ambassador; top that off with a triumphant return to music-making, and you have an amazing tale leading back to one place: the blues.Now, with The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues, his first release for Red House Records, Bromberg and multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell (Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon) focus on the music David discovered in high school, when, circa late 50s, he was introduced to a friends dads collection of blues 78s. Hed only just taken up guitar as a means to pass the time while in bed with the measles.I loved those 78s so much, says David, I taped them on a portable reel-to-reel, so I could listen at home and learn.That love is evident in The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues. The album is both blues primer and an opportunity to witness a master embracing this distinctly American music with passion and grace. Theres a lot of different types of blue
