Sonny Landreth’s new album “From the Reach” will be released on May 20, 2008. Jimmy Buffett appears on one track called “Howlin’ Moon”. The new album is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com
In addition to his fan favorites, Sonny performed several songs from his eagerly-awaited CD, From the Reach, which is scheduled for release on May 20. “Blue Tarp Blues”, “Storm of Worry”, “Howlin Moon”, “When I Still Had You”, and “Ubresso” offer tangible evidence that the new CD will be amazing. On the CD, Sonny is joined by a litany of Landreth friends and music greats such as Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Vince Gill, Nadirah Shakoor, and Jimmy Buffett.
From Modern Guitars Magazine:
In one of two delightful changes of pace to the album’s six-string focus, Dr. John brings the requisite gris-gris to “Howlin’ Moon” with his trademark rollicking piano and harmonies, and he’s joined on the track by Jimmy Buffett. “Although the idea of the record was playing with my guitar heroes, I wanted to open to the unexpected as well,” Landreth explains. “I’d written ‘Howlin’ Moon’ a long time ago and I’d always had Dr. John in mind for it. Then we took it a step further with Jimmy’s vocal and the vibe was perfect.”
Sonny Landreth is scheduled to perform at the following Jimmy Buffett shows:
4/21/2008 – The Woodlands, TX
6/07/2008 – Raleigh, NC
6/14/2008 – Philadelphia, PA
