Oteil Burbridge Releases Magical Studio Record “Water In The Desert” [Stream]

first_imgOteil Burbridge‘s long-awaited studio record, Water In The Desert, is here. The album was produced by David Ryan Harris (who spent much of 2017 on the road with John Mayer), and features some of Burbridge’s favorite players, including brother Kofi Burbridge on keys, Lil’ John Roberts and Sean O’Rourke on drums, Mark Rivers and Alfreda Gerald on vocals, Dave Yoke on guitar and Miguel Atwood Ferguson on strings.“I started writing the songs on this record about ten years ago,” says Burbridge, two-time Grammy-winning bassist, in a statement. “They are all songs about love in some way; finding out how to love yourself, hoping that another loved one will love you just as you are, believing in someone when they find it hard to believe in themselves, love gone wrong, or finally finding the “perfect fit.” I feel like every problem we have on earth in some way comes back to the lack of love. That’s really what this record is about.”“Let Oteil Sing” Campaign Brings $4K To The Gorilla Doctors Following Dead & Co’s 2017 Summer TourWith elements of funk, soul, jazz, and beyond, the concept of love is beautifully executed on the 9-track record. Even better, Oteil is bringing the music on the road with him next month for a mini Oteil & Friends tour. During his time off from Dead & Company, the bassist will be joined by JGB keyboardist Melvin Seals, Lettuce/Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno, Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik, Primus/RatDog/Electric Beethoven drummer Jay Lane, former Nth Power and current Trombone Shorty percussionist Weedie Braimah, and vocalist Alfreda Gerald for a 9-date tour this November.While Oteil & Friends were previously slated to perform a sold-out show at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC on November 9, the show was rescheduled for Dead & Company’s appearance at Band Together: Benefit Concert For North Bay Fire Relief.You can purchase Oteil Burbridge’s fantastic new record, Water In The Desert, on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, and listen to it below on Spotify:Oteil & Friends 2017 Tour October 31 — The Ardmore Music Hall; PANovember 1 — Pour House; Charleston, SCNovember 2 — Georgia Theatre; Athens, GANovember 3 — Salvage Station; Asheville, NCNovember 4 — Neighborhood Theater; Charlotte, NCNovember 5 — The Lincoln Theatre; Raleigh, NCNovember 6 — Fillmore; Silver Spring, MDNovember 7 — The Rex Theater; Pittsburgh, PANovember 8 — Soundstage; Baltimore, MDlast_img read more

CSKA Confirms Leicester Bid for Ahmed Musa

first_imgEnglish Barclay Premier League champion, Leicester City, has put in a bid for Nigeria striker, Ahmed Musa.According to CSKA Moscow manager, Leonard Slutskiy, the English side has made a bid close to £23 million for the attacking winger.Leicester first established its interest in the Nigeria international in the January transfer window but CSKA turned down the idea of selling as the Russian team felt the English club did not meet Musa’s valuation and at the same time, the 23-year-old remained their only in-form striker in a season it emerged Russian champions. But Slutskiy lifted the lid saying that Leicester is back in the race to prise away the striker, who is also keen to move to the King Power Stadium in the summer.“The British club offered a bit less than €30 million (£22.86 million).“Musa came to me a few days ago and asked when he (Ranieri) is back for the holidays and I told him I do not know, I do not know Ranieri,” Slutskiy told Match TV.However, the CSKA Manager appears to be accepting the reality that it is a matter of time before Musa leaves the Russian champions.“I do not know for sure. It is the work of our management but I think the probability is high,” he said about the imminent departure of Musa.Musa scored 13 goals in 30 league appearances for CSKA this season with five assists. He averaged 206 minutes per goal.The CSKA man will join up with a number of top football stars to honour former Nigeria captain, Joseph Yobo, in a testimonial game in Port Harcourt this Friday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
