Welcome to the world of bassist, producer, drummer, composer, Brian Bromberg!
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

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!

Brian Bromberg is considered to be one of the world's most ground breaking and diverse bassists of our time, pushing the barriers of the acoustic and electric bass to their limits. Commonly using as many as 10 or more basses on his recordings, using different tunings, string configurations, acoustic basses, electric basses, piccolo basses etc... Brian has taken the bass and truly turned it into a vehicle for him to make music, write melodies, and be the lead melodic voice as well as the rhythmic foundation of the music. The bass has become an extention of the music inside him, and he has used all of these different basses to let that music sing!
