Anders Osborne – American Patchwork (2010)

Grammy-award winning guitarist/singer/songwriter Anders Osborne blends blues, rock and roll and New Orleans funk and R&B to create a distinctive genre-bending style that has captivated music fans and fellow performers alike. He wrote “Watch The Wind Blow By,” a No.1, million-selling country hit for Tim McGraw and two tracks on bluesman Keb’ Mo’s Grammy-winning album Slow Down. American Patchwork is an intensely soulful album, ranging from gentle ballads to burning rockers, including some truly amazing guitar playing. Galactic’s Stanton Moore and Corrosion of Conformity’s Pepper Keenan guest.

‘5’ (strangely enough) is the fifth album by J. J. Cale. Released in 1979, it was his first album for three years. Most of the tracks were recorded and mixed at The Lakehouse, Old Hickory, Tennessee. Later, when the album was re-issued on CD, for unknown reasons “Katy Kool Lady” was replaced by a new song, though it was still listed as the former on the CD.

Billy Cox (formerly of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) played bass on 5.
