Dead-trommis hyller New Orleans
Grateful Dead-trommeslager Bill Kreutzmann har endelig fått anledning til å ta frem sin indre Louisianna-mann med dannelsen av det nye ensemblet 7 Walkers.
Her er Village Records omtale av 7 Walkers selvtittulerte debutplate:
Famed drummer and Grateful Dead co-founder Bill Kreutzmann and voodoo guitar master Papa Mali come together as 7 Walkers for their self-titled debut release, due out November 2, 2010 on Response Records. Together with legendary New Orleans bass man George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Funky Meters) and multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Fastball), the highly anticipated release features a batch of brand-new Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan lyricist) originals co-written with the band, a guest performance by Willie Nelson on “King Cotton Blues,” and a few smokin’ instrumentals. A self-proclaimed “open love letter” to the city of New Orleans, the end result is a fiery and funky collection of tunes that quite brilliantly capture a unique collaboration between two very different musical shamans.
