Made in Brooklyn, the new Chesky album from Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder, John McEuen, is a time capsule of American roots music featuring guest performances from the likes of Steve Martin, David Bromberg, David Amram, John Carter Cash, and a dozen other well known stars of the genre. Featuring both original material from McEuen, as well as unexpected covers such as Warren Zevon's "Excitable Boy," this 16 track extravaganza will not disappoint.
Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. These new Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event.
"McEuen enlists a remarkable cast of musical collaborators to realize his vision...Their singular contributions add to the air of authenticity and help make Made In Brooklyn a remarkable collaborative showcase. Recorded at an old church in Brooklyn, the album reflects the spirit and spontaneity that originally took flight with Will The Circle Be Unbroken, proof that despite age and origins, great music of a revered pedigree never goes out of style." - Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
