Widespread Panic collaboration with David Bromberg out now!
David Bromberg’s new album, Use Me, releases today and features Bromberg and Panic performing the band’s song “Old Neighborhood”. This makes it the first time a studio version of this track has been released.
“Although Bromberg has released his own original material, to place him next to the artists on Use Me was a brilliant way to explore a variety of genres, feature many top-shelf musicians and put him back into what may be his most comfortable zone – playing alongside another great talent. The album features Levon Helm, Dr. John, Keb’ Mo’, Los Lobos, Linda Ronstadt and, perhaps the most interesting collaboration, Widespread Panic on the jam track ‘Old Neighborhood.’ . . . Widespread Panic leaves no room for confusion as well with their distinct, big, grooving sound. Apparently it was a highlight for Bromberg, who comments in the liner notes, “It was a big charge playing with all of them. They treated me like one of the band. Jimmy Herring is an awesome guitar player. Trading licks with him on stage with such a cooking band was heaven.”
