Oteil 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, MD
Loading… Real Sociedad had been fourth when La Liga resumed last month but, in contrast, their form collapsed. This victory was only their second in nine games but at least gives them of making the top seven. Atletico and Sevilla are both nine points clear of Sevilla with two games left. They will join Barcelona and Real Madrid as Spain’s four representatives in the Champions League next term. Willian Jose and Diego Llorente both headed in to put Real Sociedad in control but Santi Cazorla’s consolation strike could prove important for Villarreal, as it prevents la Real owning the superior head-to-head record. Villarreal beat Real Sociedad by the same scoreline in January. Fifth place for Villarreal would mean avoiding the qualification phase of the Europa League. They sit three points clear of Ogenekaro Etebo’sGetafe and Real Sociedad in sixth and seventh respectively.
