I am very much looking foward to this one.

02.04.10
New Album Update
Basic tracks for Bernie and Eltonís new album with Leon Russell have been recently completed and the gang is about to start vocals and overdubs immediately. The trio has cut fifteen songs ranging from Stones like rockers, Country tinged ballads, Gospel and even a Sinatra like weepy similar to something torn from the grooves of ďIn the Wee Small HoursĒ As reported before itís varied in scope and drenched in a rich tapestry of atmospherics. Donít expect to hear the old EJ/BT sound; this is organic recording unlike anything youíve heard from our duo before.

Leon continues to improve from the surgery that sidelined him in the initial stages and caused the media to over diagnose his condition. His playing is masterful as ever and his contribution to the project grows more exciting with the passing of everyday.

The players in the first two weeks of recording have included such T-Bone Burnett stalwarts as drummers Jim Keltner and Jay Bellerose, Bassist Dennis Crouch, guitar virtuoso Marc Ribot and additional keyboardist and tech wizard Keefus Ciancia.

Stay posted for further updates.

I really think that Elton John should consider retirement as far as making new records. He hasn't made a decent album in over 30 years. I'm sure he is worth seeing live but his new music is definitely subpar.

Of course when you realize Bob hasn't been able to sing for almost half a century.......
