Jeff Bridges - Jeff BridgesJeff Bridges' self-titled
major-label debut album reunites the celebrated actor with his Crazy Heart collaborator,
the Grammy Award and Oscar-winning songwriter, musician, and producer T Bone
Burnett. The album is an organic extension and culmination of a 30-year
personal, professional, and now musical friendship between Bridges and Burnett.
It features songs by a host of world-class songwriters, including Burnett's
Crazy Heart collaborators the late Stephen Bruton and John Goodwin as well as
Greg Brown alongside several written or co-written by Bridges himself. To
perform the songs, Burnett assembled a number of his key repertory players,
including keyboardist Keefus Ciancia, guitarist Mark Ribot, bassist Dennis
Crouch, pedal steel guitarist Russ Pahl, and drummer Jay Bellerose, as well as
guest vocalists Rosanne Cash, Ryan Bingham, Sam Phillips, and Benji Hughes.
