Edie Brickell & The Gaddabouts Announce Sophomore Album

Edie Brickell & The Gaddabouts have announced the release of their sophomore album, Look Out Now, which comes out April 3 on racecarLOTTA Records. Featuring renowned songwriter and musician Edie Brickell alongside Steve Gadd, Pino Palladino and Andy Fairweather-Low, The Gaddabouts are essentially a modern-day supergroup. The new, 17-song, double disc album was recorded in New York City in April and July of 2011. According to Brickell:

The song was a true improvisation, spur of the moment. Steve chose to start the record with this improv because it feels great and sets the tone for a playful band dynamic heard throughout the album. It’s a tribute and a nod to the days when bands played so well they were recorded live in the studio together—a live performance comes through on every track. This double disc represents 3 weeks together in 2011.

In addition to the quartet, the album features Ronnie Cuber (sax, vocals), Larry Goldings (keys, accordian), Pedro Martinez (percussion), Axle Tosca (piano) and Andrea Zonn (violin).

I am really looking forward to this album. I loved the first one as well as Edie’s solo album lat year. It is great to know somebody can still record an ‘old school’ album, and I love improv. Maybe they can make an entire album of improvised songs.

Hey Asshat (yeah, I mean you, “Times Have Changed”), have you actually heard any of this music? If not, then shut up and GTFO since you don’t know what you’re talking about. If I’m not mistaken, music IS Edie’s job… And considering she’s continued to make music (and some really good music at that, lately) long since her brief moment of stardom that’s a credit to her. Having a lot of hits is NOT a measure of quality… Something I’d think you’d know if you visit this website. How’s YOUR music career going, by the way? Oh, and it’s not like Edie needs a job anyway. Being married to PAUL SIMON means she’s probably doing just fine, thank you.
