Buddy Miller’s Majestic Silver Strings

by

Majestic Silver Strings is Buddy Miller’s gitaarproject, een langgekoesterde droom van hem. Op de CD wordt hij bijgestaan door drie van de grootste gitaristen van deze tijd: Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot en Greg Leisz. En dan zijn er de bijdragen van zangeressen Emmylou Harris, Patti Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Chocolate Genius en zijn vrouw Julie Miller. Zonder enige twijfel de meest bijzondere CD van dit jaar. Als extra is er een DVD met de documetaire The Making Of Majestic Silver Strings, een interview met Buddy Miller en een optreden van The Majestic Silver Strings Band in The Belcourt Theatre in Nashville.

Buddy Miller, named Artist of the Decade by No Depression Magazine, teamed up with esteemed guitarists Marc Ribot, Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz to create The Majestic Silver Strings, a monumental musical experience to be released on CD, with bonus DVD, March 1, 2011 via New West Records.
The Majestic Silver Strings, produced by Buddy, is his re-imagination of country songs, loaded with guitars, atmosphere and attitude. Guest vocalists on the album include Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Lee Ann Womack, Chocolate Genius, Ann McCrary and Julie Miller. Rounding out the band are Dennis Crouch on bass and Jay Bellerose on drums. The Majestic Silver Strings and the album’s guests are among the most well respected and in-demand current musicians. Making a record of this caliber was a dream and took luck of scheduling to make come true. A bonus DVD with concert footage of the first, and only performance to date with Buddy, Marc, Bill and Greg playing the tracks selected for this project, will be included with the CD.
The musicians re-interpret classic country songs written by some of the most esteemed songwriters including Lefty Frizzell, Roger Miller and George Jones, whose hit “Why Baby Why” is sung by Buddy on the record. The band also tackles a few traditional compositions and several new songs including “God’s Wing’d Horse” written by Julie Miller and Bill Frisell. Many projects boast one guest vocalist; Buddy has six revered friends lending their voices to the recording including Emmylou Harris on “Why I’m Walkin’” and Lee Ann Womack on “Meds.” Buddy also does a duet of “I Want To Be With You Always” with Patty Griffin.
