This will be pretty hard to top for a soundtrack the next time you throw a party. This full throttle live set is compiled from his recent world tour. All shows were recorded and this disc features the best take of each song they performed. The title tells the whole story as Setzer continues to rock his way through the universe.(Village Records)
A potent and distinctive musical gumbo with rock, blues, country, rhythm & blues and psychedelia, The Ringmaster Generalfeatures 13 songs including duets with Alison Krauss, Diane Birch and Joss Stone. Stewart is backed by some of the finest musicians in Nashville including: guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, steel guitarist Dan Dugmore. Says Stewart: “Well to me Nashville has that electric music energy feeling that you get when you arrive in certain cities or towns like Kingston, Jamaica and Havana in Cuba, except Nashville also has the feeling of being in the heart of a huge country (which it is) and it feels kinda like coming home.” He elaborates: “But it s mainly about the people I work and play with there. I ve been so fortunate as to have landed in the arms of the McBrides and becoming part of an extended family. John McBride and I share the same crazy passion for sound and all the guys in the band I record with (and the girls) are up for that wild adventure I like to bring in the studio.”
