The New Basement Tapes
Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford. The supergroup known as The New Basement Tapes needs no further introduction. Lost On The River is a concept album dreamed up by T Bone Burnett, one that unites a talented roster of artists from varying musical backgrounds. The lyrics were derived from an old session recorded by Bob Dylan, appropriately titled 'The Basement Tapes.'
The talent was hand selected by Burnett and recorded in the studio below Capitol Records in Los Angeles. Anything T Bone Burnett touches turns to gold, so there is no question that this musical project is just that.
Did we mention that the almighty Jim James is involved? Exactly.
