Live at Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening – Joe Bonamassa

The concert included new arrangements of favourite songs as well as brand new numbers — and was the highpoint of a special all-acoustic tour that featured an all-star ensemble of world-class musicians that included acclaimed cellist Tina Guo and Egyptian percussionist Hossam Ramzy.

The musical group also included Reese Wynans on piano, Anton Fig on drums, Eric Baxilian [on mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, sax and guitars] and with backing vocals by Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tipppins and Gary Pinto.

Despite being amongst the most ambitious things I’ve done…” says Bonamassa, “I played with a 9 piece acoustic band… it came out great. It was a typical Joe freak show.

Now the Carnegie Hall concert is to be released on double CD, double DVD, Blu-ray and 3 LP vinyl.

The Live at Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening recording includes 14 songs such as “Dust Bowl” which was one of the acoustic numbers performed at “Radio City” and a crowd favourite.

Fans will also enjoy “This Train” with its compelling rhythms, and the hollow-body fruitiness of “Drive” plus the Leon Russell number “Hummingbird” as well as and the saloon bar greasiness of “Livin’ Easy.”
