"Driving To Montgomery" from Randall's Bramblett's album The Meantime featuring Bramblett on piano and vocals accompanied by Gerry Hansen on drums and percussion and Chris Enghauser on upright bass with special guests Adam McKnight and Charles Bullock on backing vocals.
"Davis Causey and I wrote this song several years back as a story about two people who left the south because of civil rights issues and headed north to start a new life only to find that they missed their home in Alabama. There’s a mixture of hope and irony when they say “the times have changed” in Montgomery. We used something close to a second line beat and Dixie Hummingbirds style backing vocals to conjure up the right feel." Randall Bramblett
Randall Bramblett's beautiful new CD The Meantime, marks a departure for the highly acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who is best known for his work with Steve Winwood, Traffic, Levon Helm, Sea Level, Gregg Allman, Bonnie Raitt, Widespread Panic and more. On his 8th solo album, Bramblett performs primarily on acoustic piano, organ, and lead vocals. The CD features 12 original tracks, including some of Bramblett’s earliest songs such as “Sacred Harmony,” “Witness For Love,” and “One More Rose” as well as newer, unreleased compositions. A sultry blend of ambient folk, jazz, traditional piano and seductive vocals, the music on The Meantime is romantic and mesmerizing in the vein of Norah Jones or The Blue Nile.
