David Bromberg has been there, done that...and that and that too! But alone with a guitar, as he is in this live session, is a glimpse of where it all began.

There are likely a lot of people out there who have no idea who David Bromberg is, yet he has done so many things in his long and truly remarkable career. He produced John Hartford's Aero-Plain, and contributed to albums by everybody from Ringo Starr, to Willie Nelson, to Sha Na Na. He played on Vassar Clements' groundbreaking "Hillbilly Jazz" album, and toured with Bob Dylan. He's written songs with George Harrison, hung out with Jerry Garcia, and even at that you're just beginning to scratch the surface. Had you spent your life standing next to Bromberg, it's certain that you would have had a very good time.

Despite that, and through it all, Bromberg seems more than anything to be the person that he is in this Live at KDHX session: relaxed, funny, captivating and delightful. No fireworks or fast licks, just some great ideas and great lines: "Don't let the door hit you were a dog shoulda bit ya," and songs that can suck you in. Listen for his cue to himself, "Pick it David," in "Slept Late in the Morning."

As ever, just delightful.
