Buddy Miller records with Ribot, Frissell

Monday, June 7, 2010 – Buddy Miller sure is a busy man. Not only is he opening for and playing with Patty Griffin, he also found the time to record a new disc.

Miller said in Boston Sunday that he recorded a disc with guitarists Bill Frissell and Marc Ribot along with Greg Leisz with the music due out in January 2011. He said the CD would not be out until then because that was when the three would have time to tour behind the music. One of the songs is a Lefty Frizzell cover with Griffin on vocals.

Bass player Dennis Crouch and drummer Jay Bellerose played on the sessions produced by Miller at his home studio in Nashville in January. Miller and Ribot also sing along with guest vocalists Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, LeAnn Womack and Mark Anthony Thompson (Chocolate Genius). The CD will be released on New West Records.

Universal United House of Prayer
Buddy Miller has always been on the outskirts of mainstream country music, mixing influences from gospel to blues to bluegrass and hanging out with folks like Jim Lauderdale and Emmylou Harris. He continues to march to the beat of a different drummer on this, his first true gospel album. He sets the record up with a dark electric rocker, "Worry Too Much," in which he frets about the problems with the world. In the next song, a bright acoustic reading of the Louvin Brothers' "There's a Higher »»»
