He's played with everyone, he's toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Bromberg's sensitive and versatile approach to guitar-playing earned him a coveted position as the first-call, "hired gun" guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon. Bromberg's range of material, based in the folk and blues idioms, continually expanded with each new album to encompass bluegrass, ragtime, country and ethnic music. In 2007, David Bromberg broke a 17-year recording drought with a solo, acoustic blues album that landed a Grammy nomination. The great session man called in 40 years worth of favors, surrounding himself with a duet dream team of long-time pals Levon Helm, Linda Ronstadt, John Hiatt, Tim O’Brian, Dr. John, Los Lobos, Widespread Panic, Vince Gill, Los Lobos and Keb Mo.
