Jackson Browne’s Latest Album Showcases Veteran and Young Bassists

Jackson Browne: Standing in the BreachJackson Browne has returned with his first album in six years, Standing in the Breach.

The record, which includes a full-band version of one of his oldest songs, 1967’s “The Birds of St. Marks,” also sees him working again with superstar session bassist Bob Glaub, who played on classic Browne albums like “Lawyers in Love”, “Hold Out”, and “The Pretender”.

However, Glaub isn’t the only bassist to appear on the record. It also features the work of bassists like Tal Wilkenfeld, Sebastian Steinberg, Kevin McCormick, Julio Cesar Gonzalez and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes.

While young players collaborate with music vets on the record, the sound remains pure Jackson Browne. Just check out this Late Show With David Letterman performance of “Leaving Winslow” from the new record:

Standing in the Breach is available on CD and for digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
