Welcome to the world of bassist, producer, drummer, composer, Brian Bromberg!
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would do a Holiday CD, ever! With a lot of coaxing and the curse of the Covid-19 quarantine, I was inspired to do this project and try and make music that was fun and uplifting in a very dark and challenging time for all of us. The cool thing about a Holiday CD is that is it not genre specific, it’s all about the great Holiday music that has been around for years and years. I’m a jazz guy through and through, so jazz is the basic foundation of this project, but it covers many styles of jazz from straight ahead big band, to swing and pop vocals, funk, Latin, and even some Caribbean island music with a touch of Hanukkah! The CD features the amazing talents of artists like: Maysa, Najee, Everette Harp, Elan Trotman, Chris Walker, and so many more. So, if the Holiday spirit moves you, please check out Celebrate Me Home: The Holiday Sessions. This CD was so much fun to make, a little Holiday cheer in a very tough time for us all…….
50 years ago today the world lost a giant, the incomparable Jimi Hendrix. Even though I was almost ten years old on this day 50 years ago, I remember vividly when we heard the news about his passing. I went into my bedroom and sat on the floor with all of his records. I just looked at his pictures and cried. I have no idea why a 9 1/2-year-old kid from Tucson, Arizona was so moved by Jimi, but I was. I will never forget that day. Today, in honor of Jimi we are releasing the remix/remaster of Bromberg Plays Hendrix on Mack Avenue/Artistry Music. I just wanted it to sound as good as possible as I would hope Jimi would be proud! Here is a little video of the bonus track on the new release that I just simply call Jimi. I hope you enjoy it!
This is very cool. Tomorrow my Bromberg Plays Hendrix remix/remaster project gets digitally released. I still can't believe it's been 50 years since the passing of the brilliant Jimi Hendrix. Such a loss...https://www.popmatters.com/brian-bromberg-jimi-premiere-2647696532.html?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1
Thank you Jazziz Magazine for this amazing cover in support of my Bromberg Plays Hendrix remix/remaster CD. So awesome! The CD gets released on September, 18 (sadly the 50 year anniversary of Jimi's untimely passing) Pre orders start this Friday, August 14! All of the guitar sounds on the CD are played on that black Kiesel/Carvin piccolo bass right there in the picture. That bass rocks!
