Bromberg’s debut for Rounder included versions of traditional blues, country, folk and soul/R&B tunes. He sang them earnestly and backed himself tastefully while working with both large groups and small combos. The guest roster included everyone from Dr. John to Jackson Browne and David Lindley, as well as Chris Daniels and the Kings and some members of what was then Willie Nelson’s traveling band. The only problem with this session was Bromberg, for all his knowledge and zeal, just wasn’t that convincing or gripping a vocalist. Still, this is an instructive disc for those interested in hearing faithful recreations of various classic genres.
