Jeff Bridges - Self-Titled - Available August 16, 2011
Jeff Bridges
An Oscar-winner for his portrayal of a grizzled former country music legend in the 2009 film Crazy Heart, actor, songwriter, and musician Jeff Bridges will release his self-titled major-label debut album on August 16th, 2011, on Blue Note Records. The album is being produced by Bridges' Crazy Heart collaborator, the multiple-Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer T Bone Burnett. Recorded in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, NY, Jeff Bridges features material by a host of world-class songwriters, including Burnett's Crazy Heart collaborators the late Stephen Bruton ("What A Little Bit of Love Can Do," "Nothing Yet") and John Goodwin ("Maybe I Missed The Point," "Everything But Love," "The Quest"), Greg Brown ("Blue Car"), and Bo Ramsay ("Either Way").

The album also features several of Bridges' own compositions, including "Falling Short," "Tumbling Vine," I Will Wait" (which he wrote with Burnett and John Goodwin) and "Slow Boat" (which he wrote with Burnett and Thomas Cobb). To perform the songs, Burnett assembled a number of his key repertory players, including keyboardist Keefus Ciancia, guitarist Marc 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.
