Jackie Greene Enlists Phil Lesh and Larry Campbell For New Studio Effort
Jackie Greene’s latest studio album, Giving Up The Ghost is now set for an April 1 release on 429 Records. Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, who produced Greene’s prior disc, American Myth, once again is on board for this effort. Greene will be joined by two of his latest collaborators, as Phil Lesh and Larry Campbell also appear on the recording. Other guests include Dave Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Mic Gillette (Tower of Power) and Elvis Costello’s longtime drummer Pete Thomas, another American Myth alum.
Next up for Greene is a series of California shows next week with Tim Bluhm as the Skinny Singers (although stay tuned for news of a rumored performance with Lesh, Bob Weir and Mickey Hart on Monday night in support of Barack Obama).
