Jeff Berlin to Join Brand X for Tour
After Percy Jones announced his departure last week, Brand X has announced his replacement for their upcoming tour. Virtuoso bassist Jeff Berlin will be filling the spot.
“We’re excited to have legendary Bassist JEFF BERLIN playing in BRAND X for this upcoming tour,” the band shared on Facebook. “And we’re kicking it off with two nights at MY FATHER’S PLACE in NY, where BRUFORD recorded their classic Live album with Jeff. Jeff is one of the most commanding and melodic Bassists ever. Sure you know him from Bruford, and Holdsworth’s “Road Games”, and on Patrick Moraz’s “Story of I” with Weather Report’s Alphonse Mouzon, but he was also hand picked to play with Eddie Van Halen, Bill Evans, John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, Scott Henderson, etc… Don’t mess with Jeff — that Bass carries a mean punch! He’s got some good jokes as well…”
The band’s tour dates this year were, of course, postponed. They have yet to be scheduled, but Brand X says the shows are being rescheduled to early Summer 2021 including a major summer festival event. We’ll keep you updated with details as they become available.
hard to imagine how that might work…
This would be very interesting to say the least.
Been following his career since the 70’s …congrats !
It is interesting to bring Jeff Berlin on board to be bassist to replace fretless bassist Percy Jones. Jeff is a phenomenal bassist and I would like to see Brand X next year. I just regret never seeing them when Percy played.
