Recording Session for the Things About Comin’ My Way, a tribute Album to The Mississippi Sheiks at Avast Studio in Seattle, Washington, November 10, 2008
Bruce participated in one of several recording sessions that were held for a tribute album to the Mississippi Sheiks. Other artists contributing to the album include Kelly Joe Phelps, Bill Frisell, Van Dyke Parks, John Hammond, Ry Cooder, The Sojourners, Ndidi Onukwulu, Del Rey, Madeleine Peyroux and Robin Holcomb. The project is produced by Steve Dawson.
We arrived at the studio at about 7pm and left around 11pm. The song that Bruce chose to cover is called, Honey Babe Let The Deal Go Down. Instruments on the track are: guitar (Bruce), drums (Matt Chamberlain), keyboards (Wayne Horvitz), bass (Keith Lowe), trombone (William Carn), and Weissenborn and electric guitar (Steve Dawson). The CD is expected to be released on October 20, 2009 on the Black Hen Music label.
